Millburn intersection to get signal
A permanent traffic signal will be installed at Route 45 and Grass Lake Road in Millburn.
County officials expressed the hope that the new signal will also improve traffic conditions at a nearby Millburn Road intersection.
The Lake County Board's Public Service Committee accepted a proposal Wednesday from the Illinois Department of Transportation to install a signal light at the Route 45- Grass Lake intersection through a cost-sharing venture between IDOT and Lake County.
The committee has received several complaints regarding the Millburn Road intersection, which offers a limited view of Route 45 to the north because of a large curve in the road near the grass lake Road intersection.
Route 45 is a heavily traveled truck route and Millburn Elementary School is several blocks east of Route 45 on Millburn. As a result, the intersection is used heavily by school buses.
Under terms of the joint agreement, the Lake County Division of Transportation will prepare engineering plans for the signal at the count's expense. IDOT will execute the construction of the signals at its expense.
Committee member Robert Neal of Wadsworth said the engineering should be completed in about a month. As a result, the signal will be installed by the time school begins in the fall, he said.
