Sauk Trail Commercial Corridor
Cook County widened Sauk Trail from 2 lanes to 4 lanes, with a continuous turn lane, in 2004. Traffic is growing on Sauk Trail. The Illinois Department of Transportation recorded 24,400 annual daily traffic (ADT) on Sauk Trail and an additional 2,900 ADT on Blackhawk Drive. Consequently, the Community Shopping Center with Family Video, Marathon Gas, Abuzir Auto Sales and Repair, Taco Bell, Subway and 7-Eleven provides a convenient and thriving shopping experience for Park Foresters and the region.

Sitting off the newly resurfaced Orchard Drive, with nearly 10,000 ADT and enjoying 2,000+ customers a day is Orchard Park Plaza, a nearly 129,000-square-foot shopping center with several out-lots.
