Change in Traffic Pattern Coming Week of October 21st

Starting next week, northbound traffic along Waukegan Road will be limited to two lanes with no designated left turn lane at Chestnut Avenue. The right lane will be a dedicated through lane, the left lane will be a left turn and through lane. The northbound traffic will also be shifted closer to the new concrete curb & gutter. Southbound traffic along Waukegan Road will continue to have the same number of lanes, but will be shifted closer to the new concrete curb & gutter. Chestnut Avenue will also have the east bound left turn lane closed. Pavement striping will be changed to delineate the new lane configurations.  The temporary traffic signals will also be adjusted to accommodate the reduction and shifting of lanes. 

Changeable Message Boards will be installed along Waukegan Road to notify drivers of the change in traffic pattern and reduction of turning lanes.

We apologize for the inconvenience these changes will cause and understand some additional traffic delays will be expected. Please understand the Village is committed to ensuring the work is completed as quickly as possible and the full lane designations will be restored as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and patience during the construction operations.
