The winter shutdown for the E. Rockland Rd. construction project will end and construction will resume as of February 3, 2020. Lanes will be reduced to one-lane eastbound only.
Construction on Rockland Road between Milwaukee Ave. (IL Route 21) to St. Mary’s Road will resume as of February 3, 2020. The project does not include the section at the bridge over the Des Plaines River.
The segment of Rockland Road between Milwaukee Avenue to the
bridge is under the Village’s jurisdiction. The segment between the bridge
and St. Mary’s Road is under the jurisdiction of the Libertyville Township
Highway Department. The roadway reconstruction work is being completed in separate construction contracts, one for each segment.
The Village’s segment (Milwaukee Avenue to the bridge) includes new storm sewers, water main replacements, sanitary sewer relocations and private utility work.
It is anticipated that the roadway pavement reconstruction work for both segments will be completed in 2020. In order to complete the pavement reconstruction traffic will be shifted to one-way eastbound. Westbound traffic will be detoured via IL Route 176. Replacement of the bridge carrying Rockland Road over the Des Plaines River will be part of a future project. It is anticipated that the replacement of the bridge will occur no sooner than 2022.
