This website is dedicated to the Lake County Division of Transportation’s Cedar Lake Road Reconstruction project. This project involves the reconstruction of Cedar Lake Road. The project limits extend from just north of Illinois Route 120 to the curve just south of Nippersink Road for a distance of about 4400’. The full scope of the project will be determined during the preliminary engineering phase. This phase will include multiple studies to determine what improvements can be made to improve traffic capacity, safety and access for vehicular and pedestrian users. The result of these studies will be presented at additional public meetings and here on this website.
The project is currently in the preliminary engineering phase so many of these studies are being completed now. This project will include three public meetings as a way to keep the public aware of project status and as a way to solicit feedback and input from the public.
The first public meeting was held at Magee Middle School on 2/15/2012. This first public meeting was a presentation of existing conditions along Cedar Lake Road and intended to solicit comments and engage the public. A second public meeting will be held late summer 2012 and will provide proposed roadway improvement options. More information will be provided on the time and date of the meeting as it gets closer. The final public meeting is tentatively scheduled for winter 2012.
