La Grange trustees question state's plans for La Grange, Ogden intersection
IDOT said the intersection was in the top 5 percent of the worse performing in state
LA GRANGE – The state of Illinois is planning changes to the intersection at La Grange Road and Ogden Avenue after designating it in the top 5 percent of the worst performing intersections in Illinois, based on accident severity and frequency.
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) began data collection and engineering analysis on the intersection earlier this year and has a preliminary plan to improve it, though village trustees worry proposed changes could actually affect residents for the worse.
The core of the plan – as presented to the Village Board Sept. 23 by La Grange Public Works Director Ryan Gillingham – is the addition of a right-turn lane from westbound Ogden Avenue to north-bound La Grange Road.
