Three cars were waiting at the three-way intersection when a truck with an attached landscaping trailer rear-ended the last car, causing a chain reaction, according to Underwood.

Two of the people involved were transported to St. Alexius Medical Center with minor injuries, Underwood said.

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.
