Work will involve clearing and shaping the existing area for the construction of a new roadway and traffic signal. While the majority of the work will be off the road, trucks and equipment will be entering and exiting the site along Huntley/Boyer Road during the construction. Motorists are asked to watch out for construction equipment entering and leaving the project site and to expect increased travel times.

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 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’s website.
