Staff Summary

                     The Millburn Bypass project created two remnant roadway segments, old U.S. Route 45, from the realigned U.S. Route 45 north to the newly constructed cul-de-sac, and old Grass Lake Road, from old U.S. Route 45 west to the newly constructed cul-de-sac.

                     At its January 16, 2018 meeting, the County Board approved the jurisdictional transfer of old U.S. Route 45, in its entirety, from the State of Illinois to Lake County.

                     It is desirous to rename these remnant roadway segments to better facilitate wayfinding in the area.

                     It is recommended that old U.S. Route 45 be renamed as Main Street, and that old Grass Lake Road be renamed as Old Town Court.

                     The Millburn Bypass project also constructed a new roadway segment between old U.S. Route 45 and the realigned U.S. Route 45 that will align Millburn Road and Grass Lake Road. 

                     This new roadway extension needs to be named and added to the County highway system. 

                     It is recommended this new roadway extension be added to County highway system as County Highway 14 and be named Millburn Road.

                     The notification process will begin upon approval by the County Board.

                     The name changes are planned to take place in early 2020.
