This project consists of pavement widening on Skokie Boulevard and Sunset Ridge Road. The pavement widening included in this project will create a new dedicated right-turn only lane on Sunset Ridge to southbound Skokie from the intersection as well as dedicated left-turn only lanes on Skokie at Sunset Ridge. This work will be largely contained to the area between 899 to 1001 Skokie and from 1000 Sunset Ridge to its intersection with Skokie.
Additionally, as part of this project, the developer will install new storm sewer and sidewalks and a new traffic signal at 1135 Skokie and complete pedestrian improvements at the intersection of Skokie and Sunset Ridge.
Two-way traffic and local business access will be maintained throughout this project.
The project will be limited to the areas immediately surrounding the intersection of Skokie and Sunset Ridge with pavement widening occurring mostly between 899 to 1001 Skokie and from 1000 Sunset Ridge to its intersection with Skokie. Sidewalk installation will take place between the intersection of Skokie and Sunset Ridge and 899 Skokie. See a map of this project at this link.
