The Village of Barrington issued the following Special Traffic Alert today.

“Beginning June 4, Route 14 will be completely closed at the Canadian National tracks near Lake Zurich Road for up to 10 days.

Canadian National Railway has scheduled its Route 14 crossing for maintenance repairs beginning Monday, June 4 and extending for as long as 10 days, depending on weather conditions that might impact their ability to finish the work, which they hope to have completed in less than a week.

This project will be a complete closure of Route 14 (Northwest Highway) and will necessitate a detour through downtown Barrington, beginning at Lake-Cook Road (Main Street), and turning north on Route 59 (Hough Street) back to Route 14 (see below).

Route 14 will remain open east of IL Route 59 until the rail crossing and North from Main Street to the crossing, but for local traffic only. Similarly, Route 14 will remain open west/north of Lake-Cook Road (Main Street) until the rail crossing but for local traffic only.

The repairs to the CN tracks are designed to carry the crossing from current day until its eventual replacement with a rail bridge as a part of the underpass project.

When approaching IDOT about this repair, CN was asked to expedite this work to the first week of June in order to have it done in advance of IDOT’s U.S. Route 14 scheduled maintenance work, which will occur later this summer. IDOT plans to resurface U.S. Route 14 from Cumnor Avenue on the west to Main Street on the east/south. This project will not require a full closure of Route 14 but will involve temporary lane closures and shifts. This is also temporary measure to keep the road in acceptable condition until a larger reconstruction project can be implemented.

We urge everyone, both local and through traffic, to plan accordingly for these projects and allow extra travel time.”

Fire crews had to rescue a school bus driver who crashed into a ditch near the intersection of Bateman and Algonquin roads in Barrington Hills late Tuesday afternoon.
