Cedar Lake Rd Improvement - IL Rte 120 to Nippersink Rd

Limits: 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’.

Description: The plan is to reconstruct the road from 2 lanes to 3 lanes of pavement to accommodate a center turn lane. This project will include a new multi-use path with a connection to the Forest Preserve. In 2017, much of the construction for this project will be limited to a large culvert replacement in Squaw Creek, which requires approximately a two-month closure with posted detour, along with some off-roadwork. Then in 2018, the roadway work can begin where northbound traffic will follow a posted detour route while southbound continues on Cedar Lake Rd during east half reconstruction. This portion is planned to last about four months with completion of the whole project by the end of 2018.

8/31/17 - The work to replace the Squaw Creek culvert is 90% complete. The road will be paved and opened back up by the end of this week, and all remaining work for this part of the project will be done while the road is open to traffic. The remaining work includes pouring one final piece of the culvert, final clean up, work to stabilize the steep sides of Squaw Creek from erosion, and landscaping. Some of this work may require daily lane closures as needed.
The Contractor is also making progress on the Forest Preserve property to prepare for paving the new bike path through that area later this year.
