AmeriFreight Truck Stop, Northlake, IL
Bono Consulting provided engineering design and permitting for this 10-acre truck stop in Northlake. The project included a gas station with 6 gas dispensers and 27 car parking spaces, 8 diesel dispensers and 143 truck parking spaces, truck scale and truck wash. The parking lot will be constructed with concrete pavement to handle the heavy truck traffic. To accommodate both City of Northlake and MWRD storm water requirements, the design included a 3.66 ac-ft StormTrap underground storm water detention vault. Part of the site is proposed to be used for the planned interchange improvements at I-294 and North Avenue. The site was designed to accommodate these improvements, with the affected area designed as gravel truck parking spaces.
Project Status: Project is partially permitted and under construction.
