Starting the week of May 30, 2016, storm sewer work — part of the first phase of Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Corridor construction — will begin on Boyer and Huntley roads. This work will place a new storm sewer lateral across Boyer and Huntley roads and is anticipated to be completed in three to four weeks.
The work will include temporary daily lane closures on Boyer and Huntley roads. Kane County’s Division of Transportation asks drivers to pay attention to the flaggers and watch for trucks and equipment leaving and entering the sites along Huntley and Boyer roads during the construction. Motorists should expect increased travel times and adjust their schedules accordingly.
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. The parkway is designed to relieve congestion, encourage economic development, improve travel options and connect towns and neighborhoods.
Additional information is available on the Longmeadow Parkway page of the Kane County Division of Transportation’s website.
Questions and concerns may be directed to David Boesch, chief of construction, at (630) 845-7875.
