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.

Oak Street Bridge: The contractor is completing the installation of the precast concrete parapet walls on both sides of the bridge. Electrical work is also ongoing to accommodate new light poles that will be installed on top of the precast parapet walls.

Cherry Street Bridge: The cast in place concrete parapet wall on the north side of the bridge have been poured and the Contractor is forming the south side this week. The west approach has been excavated for the pavement.
