Lake Cook Road Construction Starts Today

Lake Closures begin at 5 a.m.

Lane closures begin at 5 a.m. today for the major planned construction project on Lake Cook Road between Deer Lake and Ellendale Roads, according to information provided by the Village’s official construction website.

Initial lane closures will be in effect from 5 a.m. to approximately 5 p.m. during the initial phase of the project.

Earlier: Effort Made to Ease Lake Cook Construction Burden

“The first stage of construction will include the demolition of median islands to provide for temporary pavement to allow for the maintenance of one lane of traffic in each direction and left-turn lanes during construction,” the Village writes on the website.

Deerfield will provide continual updates on its special website (www,lakecookroad.com). People can register on the website for regular email updates to keep thoroughly informed about the status of all the work being done.

The Village will hold a meeting at 3 p.m. for businesses and 5 p.m. for residents Thursday at Deerfield Village Hall. Representatives of the Cook County Department of Transportation and contractor ALamp Road Builders will be there to answer questions.

Excellent point. The link in the article is wrong. Hopefully, we can figure out a way to support small business as it gets impacted once again....

Thanks for the catch. The words were correct but the link wrong. It works now.

Can the geniuses who decided to reconstruct Lake Cook and Willow at the same time please be sentenced to do hard time? Dundee is the logical alternative for both, and Dundee will be a non-stop mess during the simultaneous work on these roads.

How about doing the work on a 24x7 basis to get it done sooner?

Billy Bob - lets not forget about the closure of Deerfield Road between Saunders and 21 this week causing additional congestion as well... and the ongoing saga that is Rte 22!
