Beginning May 12, 2014 | Public Access Improvements Underway
As part of improvements for the Fox River Forest Preserve in Port Barrington, a new 0.25-mile gravel trail, a 0.4-mile paved trail and two boardwalks are being added to the preserve's existing trail system. The plan also includes revisions to an existing parking lot including new trail access.
Completion is expected by summer 2015. View project map.
The preserve work is taking place south of Roberts Road in conjunction with an adjacent Lake County Department of Transportation road improvement project at the intersection of Roberts Road and River Road. Check here for road detour and project status updates.
Improvements for the section of preserve located north of Roberts Road are part of a larger master plan for the site and are on hold pending additional funding.
