Longmeadow Parkway Project Closes White Chapel Lane for One Week Starting Oct. 4

The south leg of White Chapel Lane will be closed for one week starting Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, to allow crews room to safely place and cure new concrete pavement at the intersection of Longmeadow Parkway and White Chapel Lane. The north leg of White Chapel Road will remain open to traffic during this work.

“We ask that you avoid this area, find alternate routes and adjust your travel time accordingly,” the Kane County Division of Transportation said in a news release.

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 new 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 says 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 David Boesch, chief of construction with the Kane County Division of Transportation, at (630) 845-7875.
