Hart

A sign on Hart Road warns of headaches ahead.

Patching and resurfacing will require intermittent daytime lane closures in the Barrington, Lake Zurich and Deer Park areas beginning Monday, May 9th, weather permitting.

Work is scheduled for Lake-Cook Road/County Line Road/Main Street from Hart Road in Barrington to Rue Touraine in Lake Zurich, passing through Deer Park.

The $4.2 million improvements consist of resurfacing the 4.6-mile stretch of Lake-Cook Road/County Line Road/Main Street and constructing new ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps. Work is expected to be completed in October. Access to residences and businesses within the work zone will be maintained throughout construction.

Construction

The Lake County Division of Transportation’s $90 million 2022 construction program is split between big projects carried over from last year and a mix of new ones scheduled this season.

Altogether, about three dozen transportation projects will be spread throughout the county. The project list includes 48 miles of road resurfacing, nearly 12 miles of new or widened pavement, and bridge and culvert replacements as well as bike path connections.

An interactive map with locations and descriptions of projects in the 2022 program will be available soon at lakecountyil.gov/transportation.

In the Barrington area, the 2022 construction program includes about $3 million to replace existing culverts with a single span bridge at Flint Creek, resurface Hart Road and build a multiuse path.

That project includes an incentive for the contractor to be done early and a penalty if the road closure goes beyond 155 calendar days.

59 Closed Monday

The Union Pacific railroad crossing on Route 59 near Catlow Court in Barrington will be closed to traffic from August 23 to September 1.

A busy section of Route 59 in Barrington will be closed in both directions for over a week starting Monday so crews can repair a railroad crossing.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced the closure will take place on Route 59, also known as Hough Street, north of County Line Road (Main Street).

IDOT said repairs to the Union Pacific Railroad crossing will require a full closure of the southbound and northbound lanes.

Route 59 will be closed from Catlow Court to Franklin Street during the project, which officials said is for “crossing improvements.”

A detour will direct motorists to County Line Road, Hart Road and Northwest Highway (Route 14).

The work is expected to be completed, weather permitting, by 9 a.m. on September 1.
