Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

The policy shall include procedures for ensuring that the public is informed of construction projects, excluding emergency projects, which are estimated to require the closure of a street or lane of traffic for a period longer than 5 consecutive business days. The policy shall include procedures for the notification of local public officials, including the highway commissioner in each Department district that will be impacted by the construction projects, and affected businesses of affected communities and shall provide the local public officials the opportunity to request a meeting with the Department prior to the initiation of the closure.
    (b) The policy shall include a requirement that the Department contact the highway commissioner located in each Department district that will be impacted by a proposed construction project. The policy shall be completed and published on the Department's Internet website by January 1, 2022.
    (c) The Department shall work with affected stakeholders, including residents, businesses, and other community members, before and during construction by considering various methods to mitigate and reduce project impacts to better serve those directly impacted by the improvement. Those methods could include, but need not be limited to, detour routing and temporary signage.
