    Visit the project website: washingtonstreetinfo.com

    Project:
    Washington St Reconstruction

    Limits:
    Reconstruct Washington St from Cedar Lake Rd to just west of Hainesville Rd.
    Resurface Cedar Lake Rd from approximately 500' south and 100' north of Washington Street.
    Reconstruct 100' of Dorothy Lane just west of Washington St.

    Project Description:
    This project consists of widening to three lanes and reconstructing Washington St and adding a right turn lane and resurfacing Cedar Lake Rd.

    Other features of the project include bike lanes added to both sides of the
    pavement, sidewalks, watermain replacement, sanitary replacement and
    landscaping.
    Project Status: Active

    Project % Complete: 75%

    Current Information:
    Washington St will be reopened to traffic the week of July 21, likely on or before Thursday, July 24. The closure allowed the contractor to construct the watermain, drainage, aggregate base, curbs and most of the pavement. There were also some delays caused by unanticipated conflicting utilities that needed to be relocated. Thank you for your patience during the closure.

    The contractor will continue to work on the project through mid-August placing the final surface, remaining sidewalks, landscaping and punchlist. This will be done under one lane traffic control using flaggers during the day as necessary.

  • Project 5: Delany Rd: From: Sunset Ave To: York House Rd

  • Project 6: River Rd: Roberts Rd


    Project:
    River Road and Roberts Road Intersection Improvement

    Limits:
    About 900 feet in each direction of the intersection of River and Roberts Roads in Lake Barrington.


    Project Description:

    This intersection improvement project consists of replacing the existing signalized intersection with a roundabout. The work that will be done includes pavement widening and resurfacing, storm sewer, drainage and pavement shoulder improvements, and replacement of an existing 42 inch diameter culvert under River Road. The project also includes construction of a 7 foot high retaining wall, street lights, landscaping, new sidewalks and a new multi-use path connection to the Lake County Forest Preserve District path at the Fox River Forest Preserve.

     

    Poor soil conditions make it necessary to stabilize the ground under the new intersection to provide a solid roadway foundation. This stabilization process will require time and it will be necessary to close River Road to all traffic for approximately six months beginning in June 2014. Roberts Road will remain open to traffic during construction, with the exception of a full intersection closure expected to take place late in 2014 and last for approximately 2-3 weeks. A map of the recommended detour routes for both road closures is provided below.

    Project Status: Scheduled

    Project % Complete: 0%

    Current Information:  Advance utility relocation is now underway with project construction 

    expected to begin sometime in June of 2014 and to be completed in late spring of 2015.
