This week, the Lake County Division of Transportation will be closing Fremont Center Road from Illinois Route 60 to Erhart Road to through traffic for a safety improvement project. The closure is expected to last approximately two months.
The project will improve safety by realigning Fremont Center Rd to intersect IL RT 60 at an angle closer to 90 degrees and will also include the following improvements:
- Traffic signal at Fremont Center Rd and IL RT 60;
- Widened intersection to include turn lanes for all turning movements;
- New asphalt pavement on Fremont Center Rd and IL RT 60;
- New drainage improvements and detention basin.
Local residents will still have access to driveways during construction. Detour Route: IL RT 60 to Schank Ave to IL RT 176 to Gilmer Rd. Local traffic will have access from Erhart Rd north to the construction zone. The road will be closed to all through traffic at the construction zone.
