The Lake County Division of Transportation has planned an improvement of the intersection of Gilmer Road and Midlothian Road in Hawthorn Woods and unincorporated Lake County, Illinois. The roadway work on Gilmer Road extends from Crescent Drive / Cardinal Drive at the north to the railroad tracks at the shouth. Additional shared use path construction extends north to Schwerman Road along the southwest side of Gilmer Road. The work on Midlothian Road extends from 1000' south of Hawthorn Hills Drive to 100' south of Sylvan Drive.
The Improve Gilmer-Midlothian website is dedicated to the Lake County Division of Transportation's Gilmer Road and Midlothian Road Intersection Improvements. This website has been created to deliver project information. We invite you to Learn More about the proposed improvements.
