Frontage Road Construction Notice

Construction Notice

Village of Fox Lake would like to notify you that Peter Baker & Son Company is currently scheduled to begin work on the Frontage Road/Hartigan Road project on Monday, April 29, 2019. We anticipate the project to be completed by August 9, 2019. However, weather and unforeseen circumstances may adversely affect the proposed schedule.

The work on this project consists of installation of new storm sewer, curb & gutter removal and replacement, driveway apron removal and replacement, pavement removal, pavement patching, hot-mix asphalt pavement, pavement markings and landscape restoration. This project does not include any water main or sanitary sewer improvements or modifications.

To complete the work, Frontage Rd will be closed to northbound traffic and a detour will be set up.  Southbound traffic will be allowed on Frontage Rd.  Please see the attached detour map for more information.  

Access to all businesses will be provided throughout the duration of the project.

The construction operations will likely create delays in travel and motorists should allow extra time to navigate through the area. As with any construction project, there will occasionally be inconveniences you may experience when traveling through the project, but the Village and Contractor are working together to minimize disruptions and nuisances.  The project team thanks you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this undertaking. 

Due to concerns of the existing detour route along Frontage Road, the Village has worked with the contractor to come up with an alternate route. The northern entrance of Jewel to Big Hollow will be open to two-way traffic. From the northern entrance of Jewel to Hartigan Road will remain one-way traffic.

Signs are posted in the construction zone noting this change; please use caution while driving in the construction zone.

Additional information about the project including weekly construction updates can be viewed on the project specific website located at:
