  • Washington Street from Tri-State Parkway to Hunt Club Road
  • Final paving has been completed and landscape restoration remains. Construction zone speed limits will be posted until all the restoration is completed.

    The pedestrian path on the north side of Washington Street and east of Hunt Club Road will not be completed as part of the current roadway project as it is outside the project limits which stop about 1200' east of Hunt Club Road (where the roadway used to narrow to 2 lanes). The Village is aware of this much needed path and we will be working with the Lake County Division of Transportation to see if we can facilitate the installation.

    We are recommending that pedestrians and bicyclist cross Hunt Club Road at Dada Drive. The roadway serving Woodland Intermediate School connects into the pedestrian path on Cemetery Road and then south to Washington Street and then over to the Des Plaines trail.

  • 2011 Motor Fuel Tax Roadway Rehabilitation
  • Maps are available on the Gurnee website depicting the specific street locations of the contract work this year.

    Tri-State Parkway has been leveled and turn bay work is underway at the Holiday Inn.

    Heatherridge Drive has been leveled and surface is pending.

    Residents or businesses that identify a hazard such as a pothole are always asked to contact the Public Works Department for an immediate repair to eliminate the hazard.


  • 2011 Motor Fuel Tax Crack Sealing
  • The Village of Gurnee annually performs preventative maintenance on our pavements to extend their life and serviceability. Work consists of routing out cracks and then filling them with a rubberized sealant to prevent the intrusion of water and grit into the pavement section. Crack sealing work for 2011 will occur later this month at various locations throughout the Village. Fast moving lane closures can be expected to facilitate this work.


  • IL Route 132 pavement patching
  • IDOT has contracted to have asphalt pavement patching performed at several locations along Grand Avenue. Work is scheduled at the following locations:

    Bridge over the Tollway between the ramps.

    At Hunt Club Road intersection

    Between O'Plaine Road and Greenleaf Street


    Work is expected to begin the week of September 5th and daily lane closures can be expected.


  • US Highway 41 pavement patching
  • IDOT has contracted to have concrete patching performed on Skokie Highway under the railroad bridge near Delany Road and under Washington Street. This work will require lane closures to facilitate the work. No schedule is available at this time.


  • IL Route 21 widening from IL Route 120 to IL Route 137
  • IDOT project to widen Route 21 to 4 lanes. This fall we expect to see preparatory work on this corridor including tree removal, grading, and temporary pavement installation. The project will begin in earnest next spring.
