The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways (DoTH) is conducting a study to help identify potential improvements along Central Avenue from Sauk Trail to U.S. 30 (Lincoln Highway).

The 1.5-mile project area is located within the Villages of Matteson, Richton Park and unincorporated Rich Township, and crosses the Canadian National Railroad (CNRR) and Old Plank Road Trail.
