The City of Lake Forest is partnering with the Lake County Forest Preserve District and Lake Forest Academy to build a trail connection which will link the Middlefork Savanna Forest Preserve to other local trails and parks. The project includes a 221-foot steel pedestrian bridge over the railroad with a new scenic overlook, new 10-foot wide paved trails and a revised crosswalk at Rte. 60 to improve access to Townline Community Park.
The project has been funded by generous donors and a grant from the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, administered by IDOT.
Work will be suspended during the week of the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club.
