Sheridan Road Bridge | Illinois Department of Transportation

The Illinois Department of Transportation tasked Knight with providing engineering services for the removal and replacement of the structure carrying Sheridan Road over a small creek in Lake County, Illinois. With input from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the City of Lake Forest, Knight designed a new bridge that combined modern structural expertise with traditional design elements found in the existing structure. Located at the main entrance to the College of Lake Forest, Knight worked closely with the college and the community to develop a construction schedule that called for work requiring road closure to occur during the summer months and for the main entrance to be accessible by the start of the fall semester.
