ROUTE 14 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE –  November 20, 2018

“As you begin your Thanksgiving travels, keep in mind that construction and paving still continues on Route 14 through Barrington.

We just received an update from IDOT, which still has two full days of paving left to do. Cold temperatures stopped work for today, but they are anticipating working tomorrow and then early next week in order to complete the paving portion of the project. Final striping of the road will follow.

The Village thanks you for your patience; as this is an IDOT project we have not had control over the timing and completion.

Safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!”

35544391_1755459164489751_7518424501726478336_nThe Village of Barrington has issued the following SPECIAL TRAFFIC ALERT:

IDOT To Begin Route 14 Repaving Project Between Hart Road and Lake-Cook Road (Main Street) on Monday

Monday, August 20 is the first day of school, but it’s also the first day of an IDOT project to repave a section of U.S. Route 14 between Hart Road (beginning just west of Western Ave.) on the west and Main Street (Lake-Cook Road) on the east/south.

Residents and commuters will experience temporary lane closures and shifts during the roadwork, but Route 14 will still remain open for traffic. Significant traffic delays should be anticipated. This project is completely controlled by IDOT and is expected to last up to 8 weeks. The resurfacing is a temporary measure designed to keep the road in acceptable condition until the Route 14 underpass can be completed in the future.

We urge our residents and commuters to leave extra time on Monday, August 20, as it is also the first day of school, which traditionally means that traffic is much heavier than normal during the school rush-hour periods (7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.).

IDOT thanks you for your patience during this road improvement project.

honor_coverIt’s easy to see why Ted Thome is a regular participant and volunteer at the annual Project Hero Barrington Honor Ride and Run that benefits veteran rehabilitation programs and other services.

Thome, 47, of Barrington, is a West Point graduate and an endurance athlete who served in the Army from 1993 to 1998. Sunday’s eighth annual honor ride and run is a way for him and other veterans to help fellow veterans.

“It’s something that’s important to me given my history and understanding of the military, to have some appreciation for all the sacrifices that the veterans have done,” said Thome, a portfolio manager.

“I think in our daily lives, they’re not always front and center for us, but I think it’s important to remember those that have sacrificed a lot, so that we can enjoy everything that we enjoy in our daily lives.”

Check-in and same-day registration for the ride and run benefiting Project Hero begins at 7 a.m. Sunday at the Barrington Hills Park District, 361 Bateman Road. Participants of all ages and ability levels can take part in a noncompetitive bike ride on scenic, bike-friendly routes of 14, 33 and 47 miles. There also are running and walking routes covering 3.8 miles or 1 mile.

All money raised goes to Project Hero, a national nonprofit helping military vets and first responders affected by post-traumatic stress disorder or injuries. Project Hero touts offering programs at lower costs while reducing drug-based therapies.

You can read the full article in the Daily Herald here.

Readers are reminded that there will be temporary disruptions in traffic on Village roads as the bike riders pass through Barrington Hills.  If you have the time, wave to the veterans as a small gesture to thank them for their sacrifices.
