North Krueger Road Proposed Improvements Open House

Thursday, December 15, 2016 5:30 PM To 7:30 PM

Woodlawn Middle School, 6362 Gilmer Road

Background.  

November 18, 2016 (Email Blast)

Dear Long Grove Residents,

The Village of Long Grove has made application for Federal Funding that would pay for 80% of the cost to reconstruct North Krueger Road in 2018.  The Village is pursuing Federal Funding in an effort to maximize the use of Village Funds to repave our public roads and as a mechanism to reconstruct and correct various aspects of the current roadway pavement for North Krueger Road.  As part of this reconstruction, the design will replace the existing 22’ wide roadway pavement and add 3’ of paved shoulder on each side.  The Village is proposing adding the 3’ wide paved shoulder to protect the edge of pavement and to provide a “safe harbor” buffer for drivers and formalizing the shoulder by adding gravel and re-shaping the ditch lines.  For reference, the proposed cross-section is very similar to that used by Lake County with the closest examples being Gilmer Road and Diamond Lake Road.  The attached Invitation and Handout provide further details on the proposed project.

As part of the Village’s efforts to solicit public input for these planned improvements, the Village will be hosting an informational public meeting at Woodlawn Middle School (6362 Gilmer Road) on Thursday, December 15, 2016 from 5:30 PM until 7:30 PM.  Additional information on this project will be presented during the public informational meeting.  Those interested are encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about the project and to provide input.  For those unable to attend the meeting, the materials will be posted to the Village’s website following the meeting with public comment requested by December 31, 2016. 

The Village will be distributing this information through regular mail and other available means but you are encouraged to please share this email and information with your friends and neighbors so that they are aware of the project and the opportunity to provide input.  

Sincerely,

The Village of Long Grove
