Longmeadow Parkway Right-of-Way Prep Moves to Barrington Hills Starting Jan. 22
The next stage of right-of-way work for the Longmeadow Parkway Corridor will take place in Barrington Hills, starting next week.
On Jan. 22, 2018, weather permitting, right-of-way preparation and tree removal will begin along the Longmeadow Parkway Corridor from east of IL Route 25 to IL Route 62 and along IL Route 62 in the village of Barrington Hills.
During the work, there may be temporary single-lane closures with flaggers directing traffic. Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The work is anticipated to take two weeks to complete.
Right-of-way preparation is being done in advance of the roadway improvements that will start in spring 2018.
The above-mentioned roads will remain open during treatment, but may be reduced to one lane of travel using temporary daily lane closures.
Motorists need to be prepared to reduce their speed, exercise caution and be extra alert. Watch for and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices within the work zone.
Drivers should expect delays while traveling through the work areas. You may want to add additional time to your commute and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.
KDOT officials remind drivers that it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.
Questions and concerns may be directed to Patrick VerHalen at 630-208-3138. For all Kane County traffic advisories, see the KDOT Traffic Alerts page on the KDOT website.
