Staff Summary
* AbbVie owns property at 1410 Sheridan Road in North Chicago, adjacent to the 14th Street right-of-way, which has or had leaking underground storage tanks.
* AbbVie is conducting corrective action in response to the release and has requested a No Further Remediation (NFR) letter from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to enable the use and redevelopment of the property.
* As a condition of granting a NFR letter, the Illinois EPA requires that property owners enter into standard Highway Authority Agreements stating rights and obligations relative to contaminants that may have been released into nearby highway rights-of-way.
* Lake County also requires a Supplemental Highway Authority Agreement with additional rights and obligations above and beyond what is stipulated in the Highway Authority Agreement.
* Since Lake County has jurisdiction over 14th Street and previously granted local permitting and maintenance authority to the City of North Chicago, it is necessary that both agencies be party to the agreements.
