The Lake County Division of Transportation is conducting a preliminary (Phase I) engineering study for the improvement of the intersection of Gilmer Road and Midlothian Road in Hawthorn Woods and unincorporated Lake County, Illinois. The Study will result in a recommendation to improve roadway and intersection safety and traffic operations; while minimizing environmental impacts. A conventional signalized intersection and a modern roundabout intersection will be evaluated as part of the study.
The Improve Gilmer-Midlothian website is dedicated to the Lake County Division of Transportation's Gilmer Road and Midlothian Road Improvements Study. This website has been created to facilitate public input and deliver project information. We invite you to Learn More and give your comments regarding the Study and the proposed improvements.

As of December 2014, preliminary engineering for the Gilmer Road – Midlothian Road intersection improvement is nearing completion. A traditional signalized intersection has been selected as the preferred alternative. LCDOT is scheduling a Public Hearing for the project in the Fall of 2015 where we will present the preferred alternative.
