Rockland Road STP Project


Rockland Road between Milwaukee Ave. (IL Route 21) to St. Mary’s Road is planned for roadway reconstruction beginning this summer.  Work will be completed in two phases. The project will not include the section at the bridge over the Des Plaines River.  

The segment of Rockland Road between Milwaukee Avenue to the bridge is under the Village’s jurisdiction.  The segment between the bridge and St. Mary’s Road is under the jurisdiction of the Libertyville Township Highway Department.  The proposed roadway reconstruction work will be completed in separate construction contracts, one for each segment. 

For the Village’s segment (Milwaukee Avenue to the bridge), construction is anticipated to begin this summer with underground utility improvements, which will include new storm sewers, water main replacements, sanitary sewer relocations and private utility work. Traffic will be shifted one-way eastbound during this time.  Westbound traffic will be detoured via IL Route 176. Construction will shut down for the winter and two-way traffic will be temporarily restored.  A public information meeting which will include the ability for the public to view the plans associated with the reconstruction project is anticipated to occur in late spring or early summer of 2019. 

It is anticipated that the roadway pavement reconstruction work for both segments will be completed in 2020. In order to complete the pavement reconstruction traffic will be shifted to one-way eastbound. Westbound traffic will be detoured via IL Route 176.  Replacement of the bridge carrying Rockland Road over the Des Plaines River will be part of a future project. It is anticipated that the replacement of the bridge will occur no sooner than 2022.
