Openlands Lakeshore Trail

GRAEF provided overall design and project management, as we led a team of consultants to protect and restore this unique 1-mile segment of Lake Michigan shoreline. The restoration activities are the first step in the eventual transformation of the property into one of the largest publicly accessible lakefront preserves in Illinois. Restoration included creating a 1-mile long, ADA-accessible trail along the top of the bluff with interpretive nodes, sustainable stormwater management practices, prairie and native plant restoration, overlooks, boardwalks, and bridges over the ravine.
