Question: Why will North Orchard Drive no longer be two lanes?

Answer: The Village of Park Forest is moving forward — finally — on this project because 70% of the $8,039,748 ($8M+) project is funded by federal dollars, many of which are grants which never would have been awarded if not for the current layout, with bicycle lanes, etc.
