Hart Road in Barrington will be closed to through traffic beginning at 8 PM this evening through late Sunday, March 29.

The closure is necessary for AT&T to relocate fiber cables in preparation for the reconstruction and widening at the intersection of Hart Road and Route 14. The Lake County Division of Transportation worked with AT&T to ensure this closure occurred during spring break at Barrington High School.

A detour will take drivers from Route 14 to Route 59 to Lake-Cook Road. Local traffic will have access to area homes, Barrington High School and local businesses.

The closure is in preparation for construction later this year that will enhance safety and intersection operations at the railroad crossing on Hart Road at Route 14. Additional turn lanes will improve traffic flow, while a sidewalk, multiuse path and traffic and railroad signal enhancements will allow pedestrians and non-motorized traffic to safely cross Route 14 and the tracks.

At their November 19th meeting, the 220 Board of Education approved the demolition of the property located at 36 E. Dundee Road, which sits directly adjacent to BMS-Prairie and the Early Learning Center. The work will be completed no later than December 20th, but it is estimated it will only take approximately two weeks to complete the demolition.

While the district, “does not anticipate any disruption to the school day,” parents should be aware they will see construction crews and equipment around the parking lots of both buildings. The intent is to use the space to ease traffic congestion at both schools.

220 purchased the property last school year, after Cook County rejected a proposal from the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District to build a fire station at the site.
