The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) has begun a Phase I Engineering Study for the areas surrounding the Old McHenry Road and the Canadian National (CN) Railroad Crossing and along Quentin Road.
LCDOT seeks to improve safety, traffic operations, and connectivity for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians within and surrounding the Old McHenry Road and CN Railroad area. The project will evaluate the feasibility of constructing a new grade separation at the CN Railroad tracks, meaning motorists will not have to sit and wait for the nearly 20 trains that pass through each day.
The project team is just now getting started and community participation is most welcome. A local open house for the community will be planned this fall.

As the project progresses, documents will be posted to the website.
