Longmeadow Parkway Traffic to be Switched to New Pavement Starting Sept. 15

Kane County is starting to move traffic to new pavement on the Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Bridge Corridor.

Starting Friday (Sept. 15, 2017) southbound traffic on Randall Road will be switched to the new pavement to allow crews access to the old lanes for removal and replacement. The northbound lanes of Randal Road will be similarly switched over the week of Sept.18 to allow crews access for removal and replacement.

Motorists are asked to exercise care and reduce speed while driving through the construction zone, obey flaggers and watch out for construction equipment entering and leaving the project site.

The Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Bridge Corridor is a planned tree lined Parkway and Fox River Bridge crossing with a landscaped median, about 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.

KDOT says the LMP will provide a valuable benefit to the public by relieving congestion, encouraging economic development, improving travel options and connecting towns and neighborhoods.

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.

Work Zone Safety

Randall Road will remain open to traffic, but motorists need 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. Motorists should expect significant delays while traveling through the work areas. Motorists may want to add additional time to their commutes and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.

A reminder – it is illegal for drivers to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.
