Highlands Subdivision (Dowden Park) Flood Reduction Project

Highlands Subdivision Flood Reduction Project

The Village of Libertyville will begin construction of Phase 1 of the Highlands Subdivision Flood Reduction Project in the coming weeks. Phase 1 includes construction of a flood control storage basin in Nicholas Dowden Park on the south side of Crane Boulevard. The park will be lowered 6-9 feet to provide flood control storage for the surrounding area, reducing flooding through the subdivision.

An open house was held from Thursday, July 14th at the Village Hall to discuss the projects in more detail. The project is anticipated to begin on or around August 1st, 2022. Stabilization of the park will end in November 2022 with final park amenities and seeding completed by April 30th, 2023. The work also includes restored softball fields, a concession area, an ice rink, batting cages, and pathways.
