The Village of Antioch is happy to announce that construction on the Tiffany Road/ Hillside Avenue Bike Path is scheduled to begin the week of September 28th.
For many years the bike path between Tiffany Road and Hillside Avenue has flooded. This was due to the path being constructed several decades ago in the floodplain without a drainage system. The path also runs through wetlands, which added to the problem.
After a long process which included engineering to elevate the path and create drainage that will allow the path to be passable in all but the most serious flood conditions, obtaining permits from the Army Corps of Engineers, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission, and then putting the project out for Bid. We are ready to begin.
The Village would like to thank all our residents for your patience during this long process. We can’t wait to see the bike path being enjoyed by current and future residents.
