Construction on Deerpath in Lake Forest, which has shifted traffic near the hospital entrance, has motorists on alert.
Large orange-and-white-striped barrels, merge signs and yellow caution tape funnel drivers into a temporarily narrower lane just west of the viaduct under Route 41. Likewise, work has begun on a new Waukegan Road entrance and exit to the 160-acre campus at 660 N. Westmoreland Road.
