Cook County Approves Memorandum of Understanding for Winnetka Stormwater Project

July 24, 2017

After the Willow Road Tunnel Project was set aside due to cost concerns, the Village engaged Strand Associates to re-examine alternatives to alleviate flood risk in western Winnetka. Strand recommends a multi-phase approach that would provide significant flood risk reduction against a 100-year flood event, and improve stormwater quality. The lynchpin of the vision is a project on Forest Preserve District of Cook County land, at the northwest corner of Hibbard Road and Winnetka Avenue.
