Early next week, the contractor will begin to install traffic control and reduce traffic to one lane in each direction in Highland Park and into the eastern limits of the Village of Deerfield to complete the sewer installation that remains in Highland Park.
The contractor will work throughout spring to complete the remaining work in Highland Park as well as the miscellaneous work left in Deerfield. Once power is established, the electrical contractor will be turning on the new traffic signals except for at Heather Road and Waukegan Road. The temporary signals will then be removed. The IDOT-owned signals at Waukegan will not be able to be turned on until the project as a whole is nearing completion.
