Longmeadow Parkway Project Starts Next Phase April 17
The Longmeadow Parkway project is moving into its 2017 construction phase.
Starting the week of April 17, 2017, pavement removal and pavement widening work will begin on the following sections:
- Randall Road from approximately 1,500 feet north and south of the intersection of Longmeadow Parkway.
- Sleepy Hollow Road north and south of the intersection of Longmeadow Parkway.
- Longmeadow Parkway from Randall Road to east of White Chapel Drive.
This initial work will be complete in about two weeks, weather permitting, after which pavement, storm sewer installation and all of the remaining work items of the project will take place. Construction on this portion of the Longmeadow Parkway corridor is scheduled to be complete by the end of November 2017.
The above-mentioned roads will remain open during construction, but may be reduced to one lane or require temporary daily lane closures for the temporary pavement installation and other anticipated work.
The Kane County Division of Transportation asks motorist to be prepared to reduce their speed, exercise caution, and be extra alert. Motorist must watch for construction workers, construction vehicles entering or leaving the site, and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices within the work zone.
Drivers should expect delays while traveling through the work areas and may want to add additional time to their commutes and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.
KDOT reminds drivers that it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.
The Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor is a planned tree-lined parkway and new Fox River bridge crossing with a landscaped median, approximately 5.6 miles in length, running from Huntley Road to IL Route 62. The proposed road passes through portions of the villages of Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills, as well as unincorporated areas of Kane County.
Additional information is available on the Longmeadow Parkway page of the Kane County Division of Transportation website.
