As you are well aware, Hawthorne Drive, Sprucewood Lane, and Lake Shore Drive need repair to address pavement deterioration. As such, the Village has initiated a Phase I Engineering Study in early 2018 to investigate proposed roadway improvements along Hawthorne Drive (from IL Route 132 to Sprucewood Lane), Sprucewood Lane (from Hawthorne Drive to Lake Shore Drive), and Lake Shore Drive (from Sprucewood Lane to Beck Road). The anticipated scope of the improvement includes pavement reconstruction, concrete curb & gutter, sidewalk, storm sewer and other drainage improvements. The project should be very similar to the recently completed Beck Road improvements.

An Open House Public Meeting is anticipated to be held in Winter 2018 to display the proposed improvement and seek stakeholder input.  The Phase I Engineering Study is anticipated to conclude in Spring 2019 and the Village will then initiate Phase II Engineering, which takes 12 to 18 months and consists of detailed design and preparation of construction documentation.  The Village is pursuing federal funding to assist in paying for construction of this project, which is anticipated in 2020 at the earliest and contingent upon funding availability.

Please contact the Ed Laudenslager at 847-356-8252 or email mail@lindenhurstil.org to report such information.

Project related information and updates will be posted on the Village website as it becomes available.

Project Update #2

August 2018

The initial data collection stage of the Phase I Engineering Study was completed during Spring/Summer 2018, which included: topographic field survey, traffic counts, accident analysis, and environmental surveys. A project notice and comment form was sent out to all residents within the project study area.  Ten responses were received, mostly regarding drainage issues experienced along Hawthorne Drive and Sprucewood Lane.

The project has entered the design stage, which consists of composing preliminary engineering roadway plans, existing drainage plans, and proposed drainage plans.  The engineering consultant (Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd.) will be working with Village staff during Summer/Fall 2018 on the design plans.  Individual stakeholder coordination meetings will be held during this time to seek input on the proposed improvement design elements.  An Open House Public Meeting is anticipated to be held in Winter 2018 to display the proposed improvement and seek stakeholder input.
