Road Week Ahead: March 24 – March 28

Here’s what’s on tap for Lake County commuters this week: Mild weather and roadwork progression (Round Lake and Libertyville rejoice!)

North Tri-State Tollway construction update for Monday and Tuesday:

  • One northbound lane will be closed from Stearns School Road to Wadsworth Road during the day.
  • Northbound daytime (off-peak) and overnight closures are scheduled between the Edens Spur ramp and Lake-Cook Road.
  • Northbound overnight closures are planned from Old Mill Road to Everett Road for bridge work starting at 7 p.m. and from Half-Day Road to Everett Road starting at 11 p.m. All lanes are planned to be open by 6 a.m.
  • Southbound overnight closures are planned from Atkinson Road and the Des Plaines River starting at 9 p.m. All lanes are planned to be open by 5 a.m.

Lake County DOT roadwork updates: Round Lakers may be happy to know that the resurfacing of Cedar Lake Road from Hart Road to Park Road has been moved up to Spring 2008, as reported on the Mayor’s blog a few weeks ago.

The Butterfield Road widening project in Libertyville/Mundelein is nearing completion and all lanes are finally open. Still left to do are “final landscaping, asphalt surface and pavement markings”.

Wadsworth roadwork: Construction of a left-turn lane on Wadsworth Road at the Cambridge development is slated to begin in 2009.

Our neighbors in suburban Cook County will also endure widespread road construction this year. Those that commute amongst the counties should bring an extra batch of patience.

Here’s the the Illinois DOT construction update report; no major updates this week.

Interstate 94 weather forecast: Temps in the 40s, with a 30% chance of snow showers early in the week and possible rain for Thursday and Friday. Chances of melting last Friday’s half-foot of snowfall in northern Lake County: Excellent.
