Welcome to the Village of McLean, Illinois website! Located on Route 66 at the intersection of Interstate 55 and Route 136, McLean is a quiet, friendly community that is proud to be the home of the historic Dixie truck stop and diner. On this site, you’ll find a lot of useful information about our town, from the calendar of events and details about local businesses and attractions to village meeting agendas and minutes. Not finding what you’re looking for? Contact us and let us know what you’d like to see on the site! Also, feel free to submit your nonprofit community events for inclusion on the calendar or information about your local business for the directory. We’d love to hear from you!



Water Main Flushing Begins Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Notice to all Village Water Customers

Starting on Tuesday, April 18, we will start Flushing Water Mains using fire hydrants.

You may see a reduction in water pressure, discoloration, and possibly cloudy water throughout the flushing process.

This will affect all water customers within the Village.

The water will still meet all EPA requirements and is safe to drink.

The flushing cycle will take several weeks to complete.

Change in Recycle Routes

Please note that both garbage and recycle now need to be out by 5 am on their respective pick-up dates.

New Route 66 Development in the Works

Planning is underway for an expanded Route 66 attraction in the area south and west of the McLean Depot (across from the Dixie/Road Ranger). Click here for more details.

New Water Tower Now in Use

At noon on Thursday, February 16, the new water tower was put into use. The increased capacity provided by the new tower is critical to fire safety in the village and will allow for new business growth. There is still some painting to be done: the Route 66 shield will be enlarged and appear on both sides of the word McLean.
