The Village of Glenview

Roadway widening will improve Chestnut Avenue safety


The Village of Glenview is improving roadway safety at Chestnut Avenue between Waukegan Road and Lehigh Avenue to make the conditions safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

The project, which is supported by the Surface Transportation and Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant, is anticipated to start in summer 2022.

Chestnut Avenue will be widened from two lanes to three lanes, including green medians and lighting and incorporate improved geometry at the Chestnut and Tanglewood intersection. There will also be storm sewer improvements, including additional in-line storage.

The addition of a continuous, third lane will improve safety and traffic flow. In addition, a proposed multi-use path will accommodate pedestrians and cyclists along the north side of Chestnut Avenue.
