IL Route 62 Lane Closures Start April 9 for Longmeadow Parkway Project

IL Route 62 Lane Closures Start April 9 for Longmeadow Parkway Project

The Longmeadow Parkway project moves into spring with daily lane closures along IL Route 62, starting Monday, April 9.

The Kane County Division of Transportation is advising drivers to expect intermittent temporary daily lane closures along Route 62 between Regan Boulevard and North Autumn Trail to allow crews adequate room to safely unload supplies and equipment needed to begin storm sewer installation along Route 62.

The lane closures will take place during non-peak travel times.

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. Drivers may want to add additional time to their commutes and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.

The Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Bridge Corridor is a planned, tree-lined parkway and 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.

KDOT officials say the parkway “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 Ken Mielke, senior project manager with the Kane County Division of Transportation, at (630) 406-7172.
