Capital Improvement Projects

2023 is another big year for Capital Improvement Projects! We're grateful to be able to invest $32 million in these projects to make Lake Forest a great place for future generations.

Here’s a look at some upcoming projects:

Sir William Lane Watermain Replacement: Replacement of the entire watermain on Sir William Lane. Construction is expected to begin early June and end mid-August. 

2023 Street Resurfacing: In 2023, the City plans to resurface approximately 3.1 center-lane miles of streets and 3,000 square-yard of patches. For a detailed list and map of streets to be resurfaced, check out the construction map.

Townline Park Splashpad: The installation of anti-slip coating designed to help prevent slip and falls. The splash pad should be open by Memorial Day!

Deerpath Community Park: Construction is underway to install synthetic turf athletic fields and additional park amenities, including two restroom buildings, renovated tennis and new pickleball courts, a playground, and more. Learn more and view the live construction camera

Forest Park Bluff:
Installation of a bluff retaining wall to begin after Labor Day, expected completion by Memorial Day 2024.

Ahwahnee Road Storm Sewer Improvement: 
Replacement of an undersized storm sewer pipe with a sewer that will meet newer storm drainage standards in order to improve the drainage along Ahwahnee Road and Ahwahnee Lane between Deerpath Road and Ahwahnee Lane. Planned for late 2024.

Rockefeller / McCormick / Loch Ravine Repairs: Ravine repairs to three different yet nearby areas in the Villa Turicum subdivision. 

While impacts will vary for each project, there will likely be increases in traffic and changing traffic patterns to accommodate the work. We appreciate your patience while we work to update the City’s infrastructure. For more information on the status of these projects, check out the construction map.
