Today I went to the LLV Chamber of Commerce Luncheon where a representative from the Lake County Department of Transportation talked about the upcoming projects in Lake County as well as how they determine what projects to complete. I won't bore you with all the details, but this is what I found will impact the area the most:
1. Stearns School Road Resurfacing
Stearns School Road is currently scheduled to be resurfaced from Hutchins Rd to Rt 41 starting in Sept, 2018. This may change depending on when the State decides to repair Grand Avenue... I guess this is in the works, but not much information was given. It is nice to know they are conscious that having construction on both routes will be a major headache.
2. Rt 45 Millburn By-Pass
The County will be receiving bids for this project in June, 2018. Once a bid is selected we will know more in terms of a timeline, but it should be completed by 2020. So be on the lookout in the fall for this project to begin.
3. Gelden Road
Gelden Road will be resurfaced this year starting in May, 2018.
4. Fairfield/Monaville Roundabout
There will be a roundabout constructed at the Fairfield/Monaville intersection in 2020.
5. Grand Ave | Lindenhurst
Unfortunately not much was said about Grand Avenue in Lindenhurst. What I do know, is that the road will be widened and they are currently moving utilities. Here is the information that was posted in 2013, but it is my understanding that some has changed.
