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.
