Marking the border between Cook and Lake Counties, Lake Cook Road is a major east-west corridor serving several communities and over 40,000 daily vehicle trips. Currently, automobile traffic congestion and safety issues for both pedestrians and cyclists have guided Cook County DOTH’s plans for upgrading the Lake Cook Road corridor between Hastings Lane in Wheeling and Raupp Boulevard in Buffalo Grove. The project will widen this heavily traveled corridor, adding one lane in each direction and dedicated turn lanes at each intersection. Additional improvements will occur along Buffalo Grove Road, McHenry Road (IL-83) and Weiland Road as part of this project.
CCC is currently providing construction management services to the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways (CCDOTH) for the construction phase of the Lake Cook Road Reconstruction project. CCDOTH has partnered with the Illinois Tollway, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the City of Northlake on the reconstruction and widening of County Line Road North I-294 ramp to Grand Avenue New Interchange Ramp. CCC staff is providing construction oversight, coordination, inspection and documentation in accordance with IDOT standards.
I want to express my most sincere thanks to the project management team for their leadership and support throughout the Jamieson annex project. The CCC management staff was very professional and responsive to any of my or my staffs needs during this project. I can't speak highly enough for these employees working under the PBC and feel they should be recognized for their outstanding work.
