Update: April 17
Lakewood Forest Preserve is benefitting from a major Lake County Division of Transportation road widening project at the intersection of Fairfield Road and Route 176 in Wauconda. In addition to roadway improvements, wetland basins near the preserve's Route 176 entrance will be excavated.
Work will extend into 2014. View project updates.
During construction, access to Lakewood, the Lake County Discovery Museum, the Dog Exercise Area and all adjacent trails will remain open though minor interruptions may occur. Be alert to signage that may direct to alternative preserve entrances.
Underpasses and paved sections of the Millennium Trail and Fort Hill Trail are complete and open to trail users.
