Rockland Road Bridge Replacement

The Village of Libertyville and the Libertyville Township Road District have initiated a preliminary engineering study for potential improvements to the Rockland Road Bridge over the Des Plaines River in the Village of Libertyville and Libertyville Township.  Open-House Public Information Meetings were held over two evenings on October 20 and 21, 2020 at the Libertyville Civic Center.  The purpose of the meetings was to present the existing conditions and to solicit feedback on possible aesthetic treatments for the bridge that will be reconstructed.  Representatives from the Village of Libertyville, Libertyville Township Road District, and the project consultant team were present to discuss the project and answer any questions on an individual basis.
