Project Overview

Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital tasked Bleck Engineering with the design , permitting, and construction administration services for a new right-in / right-out access point on North Bound Waukegan Road in anticipation of the construction of a new replacement hospital on campus. Several locations for this access point just south of a traffic light were studied until a good balance was struck to minimize truck traffic impact on the neighboring residential subdivision to the south while preserving an existing mature oak grove to north and mainiting a ideal distance from the signalized intersection.
