Road Week Ahead: June 9 – June 13

Here’s what’s on tap for Lake County commuters this week.

Monday’s temporary lane closures on the North Tri-State Tollway:

  • One lane will be closed in each direction between Route 173 and Stearns School Road from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • One southbound lane will be closed between Route 137 and Stearns School Road overnight. The lane will reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Stay up-to-date with the Lake County DOT roadwork update report and Illinois DOT construction update report.

Interstate 94 weather report: It’s storming heavily as I write this, and more storms are on the way Monday. We’ll dry out Tuesday through Thursday, with more storms on Friday.

Metra parking woes in Round Lake will get worse before they get better, as up to one-third of existing spaces will be taken out of commission during parking lot construction and expansion. Local riders may wish to start making plans now for alternate stations or ever-earlier departures.

    OH NO!!! It is going to be hell at the RL Metra. Sh*t. Thanks for the warning. I WILL be leaving on an earlier train for sure!

  2. Yep, the parking situation will be rough. The Grayslake station used to have plenty of available spaces south of the tracks, but not sure how long that will be the case. I guess it’s going to be an Early Morning Summer!
