Expansion of the Skokie Valley Bike Path in Lake Bluff, Lake Forest and Highland Park south to Skokie is moving closer to reality.

Area residents got their first public look at plans to build a bicycle bridge over Lake Cook Road from Highland Park into Northbrook and an extension of the path through Northbrook to the Northfield village limit at an open house November 29 at the Highland Park Police Station.

There will be another open house from 5 to 7 p.m. December 14 at the Northbrook Village Hall.
