Willow Road bridge replacement project

The Illinois Department of Transportation awarded a more than $8.6 million contract to Lorig Construction of Des Plaines to rehabilitate and widen Willow Road over Lehigh Avenue and the Metra railroad tracks, east of Patriot Boulevard,.

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.

The work started May 20, 2019, and was expected to be completed by November 2020. No lanes of traffic are to be closed during morning (6 to 9 a.m.) and evening (3 to 6 p.m.) rush hour; however, temporary lane closures are to be expected.

To check IDOT information releases about the project, click h​ere.

To accommodate the widened bridge section within the current right-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.

​Questions regarding construction activities should go to IDOT Resident Engineer Glen Pennington, P.E., at (630) 816-5940.

​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. Here are some of their 2020 projects:
