Navigating Road Construction Season

Posted on: 04/09/2019

It looks like the old adage remains true…In Chicago, there’s the winter season and then there’s road construction season. Road construction projects are in full swing here in Lake County.

Road resurfacing, realignment and reconstruction projects can really add to your commute time. Local trip times can be unpredictable. A quick drive over to the pediatrician’s office may take much longer than anticipated. This year, it's especially true in the area of our Lindenhurst office. Road projects are impacting Grand Avenue and US Route 45, among others.

But there is help for navigating area road construction! Did you know there are helpful resources available online? Before heading out for your child’s appointment, check out these helpful online resources:
