Wadsworth Rd - Sheridan Rd to Lewis Ave

Description: : The Lake County Division of Transportation is performing a Preliminary Engineering (Phase I) study for the intersection of Wadsworth Road between Lewis Avenue and Sheridan Road and Lewis Avenue in the Village of Beach Park and the City of Waukegan. The study will look for ways to improve traffic flow and safety, such as adding a possible third middle turn lane and will investigate the need for non-motorized travel through the corridor. The project also includes a resurfacing of Wadsworth Road between Green Bay Road and Lewis Avenue.

A final public meeting was held on December 14, 2022 from 5pm – 7pm at the Beach Park Village Hall, 11270 West Wadsworth Road, Beach Park.

This was the second public involvement activity for the project and marks the conclusion of the Phase 1 study. The preferred alternative of a 3-lane roadway cross section plus an 8’ bike path on the south side of Wadsworth Rd was shown to the public along with other project related exhibits. The project team and LCDOT staff were on hand to solicit public feedback and answer any questions from the attendees. The project will now move into Phase 2, where permits will be secured, detailed construction plans will be prepared and the land acquisition process will begin. Construction of this improvement is currently programmed for 2025, pending funding availability, right-of-way acquisition and project readiness.
