Road Week Ahead: March 10 – March 14

There’s quite a bit on tap for Lake County commuters this week. Highlights include a Lake County Community Forum, a Route 120 meeting, warmer weather, and a new Tri-State lane configuration leading into Cook County.

Lake County has scheduled a series of community forums (fora?) for March and April. The forums, which are being held in various locations around the county, are being billed as a way for residents to speak out on Lake County issues and the 2008 Strategic Plan. First up is the Central Lake County forum, scheduled for Monday, March 10. Each meeting begins at 6 p.m. with a one-hour open house (“Get free stuff; Be a guest on LCTV and more!”), followed by the forum itself at 7 p.m.

The Central Lake County forum will be held at Lake County Department of Transportation headquarters, 600 W. Winchester Road in Libertyville. The “What’s Going On?” Lake County Motorist Calendar lists the dates and locations for the other forums should you want to add them to your own Google Calendar.

Here’s a summary:

  • Central Lake County Forum: Monday, March 10
  • Southeast Lake County Forum: Tuesday, March 18
  • Northwest Lake County Forum: Wednesday, March 19
  • Northeast Lake County Forum: Thursday, March 20
  • Southwest Lake County Forum: Monday, March 31
  • North Lake County Forum: Tuesday, April 1
