Deerfield Rd Corridor

This project has an external dedicated website:

Limits: From Milwaukee Avenue to Saunders/Riverwoods Road

Description: The Deerfield Road study area extends from Milwaukee Avenue on the west to Saunders/Riverwoods Road on the east, a distance of approximately 2 miles. The study area is within the municipal limits of the village of Riverwoods between Milwaukee Avenue and Saunders/Riverwoods Road, the village of Buffalo Grove west of Milwaukee Avenue, and the village of Deerfield east of Saunders/Riverwoods Road.

The Lake County Division of Transportation has completed a preliminary engineering and environmental (Phase I) study to investigate capacity, safety, drainage, and non-motorized travel deficiencies, and to accommodate future travel demand for the year 2040. In addition to addressing roadway deficiencies, the Des Plaines River Bridge was studied. A multi-use path is planned to connect the existing Buffalo Grove path on the southwest side of the Milwaukee Avenue intersection to the bike path bridge over the Des Plaines River, and ultimately to the existing Deerfield Road path on the northeast side of the Saunders/ Riverwoods Road intersection, as previously studied by the village of Riverwoods and LCDOT.
