Current Road District Projects


With an anticipated start date of June 2024, Libertyville Township Road District will begin removing and reconstructing the Oak Spring Road Bridge with pavement reconstruction on the east and west approaches. The new structure will provide a single 12-foot travel lane in each direction plus a 3-foot shoulder and an 8-foot pathway on both sides of the traveled way. This project will be largely funded through a federal infrastructure improvement grant. A completion date for the project is yet to be determined.

Due to the size and nature of a bridge replacement project, Oak Spring Road will be CLOSED for the duration of construction from the Des Plaines River Trail to the west and the private driveway at 15463 Oak Spring Road to the east. Local traffic only will be permitted from Appley Avenue/2nd Street to the full closure, and from St. Mary's Road to the full closure. It is anticipated the Lake Minear parking, Des Plaines River Trail path, and all residential driveways and side streets will be accessible throughout the construction duration, however, the Lake County Forest Preserve District Canoe Launch parking lot will be closed. Please find attached a location map and detour exhibit.
