Traffic signals were installed at the intersection, in one of the final steps of updating the roads.
The following update was published on the Techny Road Improvements blog by the Village of Northbrook and Cook County Highway Department. The permanent traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of Techny Road and Pfingsten Road.
