I-55 Access Study Virtual Public Outreach Event

The Illinois Department of Transportation (Department) in partnership with the City of Joliet invites you to learn more and comment about the I-55 Access Study located in the City of Joliet and Village of Shorewood in Will County. Instead of hosting a regular public meeting, the Department will share details of the project and encourage public participation through a new interactive link on the project website. 

   The interactive link is available now and can be accessed here:

 Purpose of the site is:

  • To present the preferred alternative for each of four independent projects identified by the I-55 Access Study
    • US 52 from River Road to Houbolt Road
    • I-55 from I-80 to US 52
    • Olympic Boulevard from I-55 East Frontage Road to Houbolt Road
    • Seil Road from Raven Road to IL 59
  • Provide a status update for each of the projects
  • Discuss the next steps of the project study

At the website, you can watch a video about the project, review exhibits regarding the study process and the preferred alternatives for each of the improvements, and leave comments.  In addition to the website, IDOT’s outreach efforts include the attached newsletter mailed to the current project mailing list and the opportunity to ask questions to Department staff over the phone.

The Department encourages you to submit comments at any time during the study process. All input will be considered, however comments received by August 4, 2020 will become part of the official public outreach record.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls


Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling?  Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall?  If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.  Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends.  A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.

A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is an eight week course and is offered by a sponsorship from and a partnership between the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. Classes will be held at the Troy Township Community Center located at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood. The eight week course is scheduled to be held on September 15, 22, and 29; October 6, 13, and 20; and November 3 and 10. Each class will be 2 hours each, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.  The instructors are from the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. This course is FREE to all Troy Township residents. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served.

Please call 815-744-1963 to register or for more information.
