How will the public vote on the extention of 53?

Asked by Jan (Flood) Dowling, Indian Creek, IL Fri Feb 13, 2009

Lake County board members have decided to put the extention of Illinois 53 north from Lake Cook rd to Illinois Highway 120 before the public on the April 7 ballot.

I truly beieve that the extension of route 53 will happen 100%, but most likely not in our lifetime. Due to the fact the state of Illinois is in big trouble financially, I have a very hard time seeing this project taking place in the near future. At some point (maybe 70 years from now), we might have no other choice but to do it. Unless we start using different tools of transportation than cars!!

This vote means nothing. Even if everyone wants it, there is no funding for any aspect of this road. The cost estimate10 years ago was for more than this years entire budget for Illinois roads.

Where 53 will cut thru Lake County can be seen on the Assessor's office Plat Maps, It has been platted for years. Also, IDOT has maps but I have found, they are not as easy to reach. It starts at Lake Cook Road and runs roughly 15 miles through the heart of Lake County to Highway 120 near Grayslake.

Is there a place to see what the proposed route of the 53 extension? How will that impact property values in towns like Long Grove?

They will vote for it. Far fewer people are negetively affected by it as comparison to the number of people who'll benefit from it. I'm not sure that it will matter a lot until they have all of the funding lined up and ready to go, but that may be available with the recent stimulus package.

Please understand the vote is not binding, it's just exploratory.
