ALERT:

Starting the week of April 19th, Lake Cook Road will be reduced to one lane eastbound from Raupp Boulevard to Hastings Lane and one lane westbound from Hastings Lane to the Target/Walmart intersection. Buffalo Grove Road by Lake Cook Road will have a new lane configuration. Expect delays and be alert when driving through the work zone.

 

These new traffic patterns and lane configurations will kick off the 2021 construction season and give the contractor the required work zone to continue the reconstruction work on Lake Cook Road and Buffalo Grove Road. The contractor will begin removing the existing pavement, completing any remaining storm sewer, and preparing the subgrade for the new pavement structure.
