Longmeadow Parkway Project to Close Barrett Drive for 4 Days Starting Oct. 23

The Kane County Division of Transportation will close the south leg of Barrett Drive for four days starting Monday, Oct. 23, to allow crews room to safely place and cure new concrete pavement at its intersection with Longmeadow Parkway.

The north leg of Barrett Drive will remain open to traffic during this work. KDOT asks drivers to avoid the area, find alternate routes and adjust travel time accordingly.

Questions and concerns may be directed to David Boesch, chief of construction with the Kane County Division of Transportation, at 630-845-7875.

About Longmeadow Parkway

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 officials say the project 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.
