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 and Cherry Street Bridges Rehabilitation

New Update as of December 13, 2019

Both the Oak and Cherry Street Bridges have been reopened to vehicular traffic.  This week the Contractor has focused on the removal of the work platforms under each bridge, final roadway striping, and the installation of the new decorative Sternberg lights on the Oak Street Bridge. 

The remaining work items include the final electrical wiring for the new lights, completion of the west stairs on the Oak Street Bridge to the Metra Platform, final punch list and cleanup activities.  The Contractor will continue to remove construction materials from the reserved Lincoln Avenue parking spaces used during construction.

If you have questions or concerns about the project please contact James Bernahl, Assistant Director of Public Works & Engineering, by phone or email at (847) 716-3261 or
