Monday, October 31, 2011
Motorists driving on Lake Cook Road Monday morning should expect delays--or find an alternate route. The Cook County Highway Department has notified the Village of Deerfield that paving of the final section of Lake Cook Road is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 31. It will likely end by 7 p.m., according to the Highway Department. As it has been all summer, traffic will continue to be reduced to one lane in each direction during the final day of construction. However, motorists are warned that traffic may occasionally come to a complete stop as concrete trucks enter and leave the work site. The work has been tentatively scheduled for Monday, but may be pushed back to Tuesday, Nov. 1, according to the Highway Department.

Cook County Highway Department will begin pavement patching and resurfacing project.
As work wraps up on the Edens Spur, drivers will get just a brief break from construction before crews return to nearby Lake-Cook Road.

Crews will also build a new, landscaped median along the road; the village of Deerfield will shoulder …
