West Frontage Road:
On Thursday, April 20th, the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways began a repaving project on the West Frontage Road from Illinois Road to Orchard Lane in the towns of Northfield and Wilmette. Families who drive to the New Trier Northfield Campus, Stepan Chemical, or Loyola Academy are encouraged to allow extra time and/or to take an alternate route. The repaving project will take approximately four weeks to complete and is being done to then allow West Frontage Road to serve as the primary detour route when the Happ Road Bridge work is underway. Questions or comments related to this project may be sent to HWY.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happ Road Bridge:
The Happ Road Bridge, just south of the Northfield New Trier campus, is scheduled for replacement in 2017. Construction is anticipated to start in early June. Once the project is underway, Happ Road, at the bridge, will be closed to both north and south bound traffic. All motorists will have to use West Frontage Road as the detour route. Questions or comments related to this project may be sent to HWY.email@example.com.
