CBBEL completed Phase I Engineering on behalf of the Lake County Division of Transportation to reconstruct this existing two-lane section of Deerfield Road. Phase I Engineering was completed in compliance with federal project development procedures in coordination with IDOT and FHWA to ensure project eligibility for federal construction funding. CBBEL evaluated multiple alternatives within the corridor, including additional through lanes and various intersection improvement scenarios. Working closely with the Village of Riverwoods and other project stakeholders, the consensus proposed improvement includes a major intersection improvement at Milwaukee Avenue (IL Route 21), converting the existing 2-lane roadway with shoulders to a 3-lane roadway with curb and gutter and new storm sewers, and providing additional pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.
