The Village of Northfield, in partnership with the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways, is conducting a study for potential future improvements to the Happ Road corridor.

This study is the first step in a three phase process for public roadway improvements.

Phase I Engineering and Environmental Study – current study
• Review existing conditions and identify deficiencies
• Hear input by public and other stakeholders
• Recommend a preferred improvement plan
• Time frame: 12-18 months

Phase II Detailed Contract Plans – potential future phase, dependent on funding
• Prepare detailed contract plans for roadway improvements
• Address property easements required to build the project, if necessary.
• Typical time frame: 18-24 months

Phase III Roadway Construction – potential future phase, dependent on funding
• Conduct roadway construction activities
• Typical time frame: one construction season

A typical timeframe to complete all three phases is approximately 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 years. Potential future roadway construction would be contingent upon agency approvals and the availability and allocation of project funding.

The purpose of the current Phase I study is to evaluate the roadway, hear your input and set guidelines for the future of Happ Road. Therefore, your input at this early stage is valuable to us!
