Lockport Street

Plainfield, Illinois

Lakota led a design team charged with the revitalization of Lockport Street, Plainfield’s main commercial corridor. The streetscape design focuses on rejuvenating this historic “Main Street” with a rich variety of materials and flexible outdoor gathering spaces. The design includes natural stone walls, brick paving, new site furniture and lighting, raised speed tables at key intersections, new plantings, street trees, and custom signage and wayfinding elements.

Lockport Street Streetscape has received the following awards: President’s Award for Urban Design-Constructed Project from the Illinois Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (2012); Merit Award from the Chicago Building Congress in the Infrastructure Category (2011); and Public Works Project of the Year from the American Public Works Association (2010).
