These closures will take place during non-peak travel times.

Illinois Tollway Regional Mobility Survey

Screen Shot 2018-03-15 at 8.37.26 AMThe Illinois Tollway is offering I-PASS customers in the Kane County region an opportunity to provide input on a Kane County project to improve regional mobility through the development of the Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor improvement. The Longmeadow Parkway project is designed to alleviate traffic congestion in northern Kane County and relieve pressure on the existing bridges crossing the Fox River. While the Illinois Tollway is not directly involved in the development of the improvement, we are hoping that our I-PASS customers can provide valuable feedback regarding their travel habits and preferences.

The Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor improvement is 5.6 miles in length and includes a new four-lane Fox River Bridge crossing and four-lane roadway with a median that passes through portions of the Villages of Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills, as well as unincorporated areas of Kane County.

For completing the survey, Kane County’s consultant is offering entry into a drawing to win a $500 check card.

Take the survey here.

From a Kane County Department of Transportation press release:

longmeadow-pkwy-2016-tree-removal-e-of-il-25-to-il-62-loc-mapThe next stage of right-of-way work for the Longmeadow Parkway Corridor will take place in Barrington Hills, starting next week.

On Jan. 22, 2018, weather permitting, right-of-way preparation and tree removal will begin along the Longmeadow Parkway Corridor from east of IL Route 25 to IL Route 62 and along IL Route 62 in the village of Barrington Hills.

During the work, there may be temporary single-lane closures with flaggers directing traffic. Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The work is anticipated to take two weeks to complete.

Right-of-way preparation is being done in advance of the roadway improvements that will start in spring 2018.

The above-mentioned roads will remain open during treatment, but may be reduced to one lane of travel using temporary daily lane closures.

Motorists need to be prepared to reduce their speed, exercise caution and be extra alert. Watch for and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices within the work zone.

Drivers should expect delays while traveling through the work areas. You may want to add additional time to your commute and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.

KDOT officials remind drivers that it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.

Questions and concerns may be directed to Patrick VerHalen at 630-208-3138. For all Kane County traffic advisories, see the KDOT Traffic Alerts page on the KDOT website.

IDOT IL 62 Study As state transportation officials brainstorm ways to address a bottleneck along Route 62 in Barrington Hills, they’re inviting area residents to learn more about the issue during an upcoming open house.

The event comes as officials with the Illinois Department of Transportation begin a four-year study examining possible upgrades and widening options to Route 62, between routes 25 and 68 in Barrington Hills.

Currently, the four-mile stretch, also named Algonquin Road, narrows to one-lane in each direction, but the roadway expands to two lanes in both directions before and after routes 25 and 68, said Kimberly Murphy, who heads the consultant studies unit for IDOT.

Traffic along that stretch of Route 62 also is over capacity, she said.

“There’s a lack of continuity between 25 and 68,” Murphy said. “It’s sort of a bottleneck.”

The upcoming open house for residents lasts from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Barrington Park District, 235 Lions Drive, Barrington.

During the event, IDOT officials said representatives will introduce tentative roadwork plans, listen to public feedback and answer residents’ questions. IDOT also is taking applications for a new community advisory committee on the project that would feature Barrington-area residents, motorists and stakeholders, Murphy said.
