About this Article

The workweek at the Lake County Forest Preserve District began Monday with a touch of melancholy as the removal of hundreds of trees commenced along Milwaukee Avenue. Working from Route 137 north, crews during the next two weeks will clear about 2,100 trees on the east side of Milwaukee Avenue in advance of widening the last major two-lane stretch of the busy road in Lake County.
