Fall is roadwork season, even in Knollwood this year

We want to pass along the following message we received this week from Shields Township Highway Commissioner Scott Anderson. Scott's contact information is given below if you want to contact him with any questions. We've also created a map to help visualize the areas he intends to work on; click on the map to see a larger version.

The following roads will be reconstructed this year:

  • Burris from Waukegan to Adelphia
  • Safford from Waukegan to Green
  • Smith from Waukegan to easterly cul-de-sac
  • Basil from Northern to easterly cul-de-sac
  • Jenkisson from Birch to easterly terminus
  • Quassey from Birch to easterly end of public street (mid-block)
  • Foster from Bayonne to Quassey
  • Plaister from Bayonne to Waukegan

The project will bring about one and one-half miles of Shields Road District pavements to a high standard.

Additionally, the remaining driveway and street patches from earlier culvert replacement will be completed.

The project should be substantially complete by Thanksgiving, weather permitting.
