In early 2017, Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways began the process of a Phase I study of Busse Road between Golf and Central Roads. This portion of Busse Road is a County roadway. The Village is in contact with Cook County representatives and will continue to share information on this study as it becomes available.

Update [Jan 2018]
Cook County has released a Winter 2017 Newsletter, which provides details on the project's status. This newsletter also includes a summary of the feedback received at the public open house held on September 14th.
Due to feedback from the public, the project team has eliminated "Alternative 2". This option proposed to add a lane in each direction, and was included in the original concept drawings (link below).
The Busse Road Phase I Study will evaluate improving Busse Road from Golf Road to Central Road, a length of approximately 1.25 miles . The study will examine proposed improvements that may include geometric modifications and pavement rehabilitation. The study will also evaluate adding turn lanes at intersections and either adding one through lane in each direction or a center lane to accommodate turning vehicles.
The study includes an analysis of the existing roadway and intersection deficiencies, development of the proposed improvements based on stakeholders’ input, and an examination of the impacts that the proposed improvements will have on the community and the environment.

The goals of the Busse Road Phase I Study include the following:
- Improve safety
- Improve mobility and access
- Enhance pedestrian and bicycle accommodations
- Upgrade roadway features to meet current design standards
- Address existing roadway/drainage deficiencies
