Current Information

5/24/2021 - Today, the Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) reopened Stearns School Road between Hutchins Road and Hunt Club Road to all traffic. With the emergency culvert installation complete, LCDOT is now in stage 2 of a larger project to build a new single span bridge at this location. Design and permitting for the bridge is now underway. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2022 and should occur after the Illinois Tollway’s project on Stearns School Road over I-94 is complete. We thank everyone for their patience over the past two months.
