Current Construction Projects
The Village of Winnetka continues to change and improve, often with the help of public infrastructure projects. We strive to provide up-to-date information about the projects with the most impact on those living, working, and visiting the community. Please keep in mind that construction zones can be dangerous. The Village encourages everyone to heed construction signs and warnings and to ensure that children do not play on or near construction sites.
