2019 public improvement projects
Willow Road bridge replacement project
The Willow Road bridge over Lehigh Avenue and the Metra railroad tracks is scheduled to be reconstructed and upgraded by the Illinois Department of Transportation starting summer 2019.
The project involves completely removing, replacing and widening the bridge superstructure and substructure. The new bridge will have additional shoulders, a 10-foot-wide multi-path on the south side and 5-foot-wide sidewalk on the north side.
IDOT is scheduled to go out for bids in March 2019 for the project, which is estimated to cost $6.85 milion.
To accommodate the widened bridge section within the current righ-of-way, a retaining wall is to be constructed on the bridge's south side.
The Village is providing $1,842 so that the 10-foot-wide multi-path can be continued along the retaining wall. By doing so, the Village will be able to extend that path in the future to connect to the Techny Trail, the path that runs from Glenview to Northbrook.
The bridge's reconstruction is expected to take two years, and be completed in multiple stages.
During the duration of the project, IDOT is expecred to keep two lanes of traffic open in both directions. Temporary lane closures, however, will be expected.
Regional transportation projects
Other jurisdictions, such as the Illinois Department of Transportation and Cook County Highway Department, plan and undertake work on roads they own and maintain in the Glenview area.
