The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways has opened the Happ Road Bridge in Northfield, increasing access to nearby high schools and the local shopping district.

The bridge over the Skokie River was completely replaced with a new three-span reinforced concrete slab bridge. Work on the bridge began in June 2017. The existing bridge was built in 1924 and had outlived its useful life, county officials said.
