Next For Longmeadow Parkway: Storm Sewer Installation From Randall Road to Karen Drive

Starting the week of May 15, 2017, storm sewer installation followed by pavement removal and widening work will begin on Longmeadow Parkway from Randall Road to Karen Drive.

The initial work will be complete in about two or three weeks. Construction on this portion of the Longmeadow Parkway corridor will be complete by the end of November 2017, weather permitting.

Longmeadow Parkway will remain open during construction, but may be reduced to one lane or require temporary daily lane closures for the storm sewer installation, temporary pavement widening and other anticipated work.

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.

Questions and concerns may be directed to David Boesch, chief of construction with the Kane County Division of Transportation, at 630-845-7875.
