The Longmeadow Parkway project will not open to traffic in 2023, but Kane County officials believe they now have a solution to, literally, get the lead out.

The county board’s transportation committee gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a $14 million contract with Bartlett-based Bluff City Materials Inc.  to remove a mound of lead-contaminated soil just beyond the eastern edge of the Brunner Family Forest Preserve.

The $135 million Longmeadow project saw decades of planning to create a new crossing of the Fox River, ease traffic congestion and spur development on the northern end of the county. The project moved forward, despite late opposition from residents along the construction path, which bisected the Brunner Family Forest Preserve.

The project is funded through a mix of bonds and government funding, including some state money that might reduce, if not eliminate, the toll bridge aspect designed to pay off the bonds and support future maintenance.

The project is complete except for a small stretch just east of the Fox River. A pile of soil contaminated with lead sits there. Figuring out what to do about the lead has delayed the project’s completion for the past two years.

On Monday, May 9, the Woman’s Board of the Rush University Medical Center will host its 27th annual Spring Luncheon, a fundraiser supporting the Medical Center’s education, research and community service programs as well as The Woman’s Board Fund for Excellence in Cellular Therapy.

The Spring Luncheon will feature keynote speaker Ali Wentworth, an actor, comedian and three-time New York Times best-selling author. Wentworth made a name for herself as a regular on three seasons of In Living Color. She has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno more than one hundred times, as well as on Colbert, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel, and was an on-air regular on The Oprah Winfrey Show for three years. Her television and film credits include Seinfeld, Jerry Maguire, Office Space, Trial and Error, and Nancy Meyer’s It’s Complicated. Ali’s career in the entertainment industry has also included off-screen roles such as TV series creator, executive producer, and writer.

Gillian Stoettner, a long-time resident of Barrington Hills, will serve as chair for the 2022 Spring Luncheon. Stoettner, who has been a member of the Rush Woman’s Board for more than 20 years, believes Wentworth’s combination of approachability and humor make her the ideal speaker for this year’s event.

“The Spring Luncheon is known for having incredibly dynamic and accomplished women as its keynote speakers, and Ali is no exception. Ali’s style is very real, unafraid to talk about real situations and real problems and to approach them with a sense of humor,” said Stoettner. “After all the difficulties and challenges of the last few years, I think we all need a good laugh. Ali is sure to give us that in droves.”

As previously mentioned, proceeds from the Spring Luncheon will go toward to Woman’s Board’s 2022 principal project: The Woman’s Board Fund for Excellence in Cellular Therapy. New cellular therapy approaches allow medical specialists to re-engineer a person’s own cancer-fighting cells to attack tumors more effectively. They have transformed how lymphoma, leukemia and other hematologic malignancies are treated at RUSH currently, and clinical trials at RUSH will test the therapies for lung cancer and melanoma. The Woman’s Board Fund will enable RUSH to introduce these exciting by complex immunotherapy treatments into patient care.

The 2022 Spring Luncheon will take place at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit thewomansboard.org or contact The Woman’s Board office at (312) 942-6513.
