The Village of Hanover Park, in coordination with the Illinois Tollway, hosted a public information meeting on August 20, 2019 at Village Hall.  Attendees learned about the preliminary engineering study for improvements to the U.S. Route 20 (Lake Street) Interchange at Illinois Route 390 Tollway, the study schedule, planning process, and the existing conditions; additionally they were able to provide input on local transportation issues and needs.
