The outside lane of westbound Longmeadow Parkway west of Barrett will be closed starting the week of Sept. 10, 2018, for about one week to allow crews to safely install a new storm sewer inlet.
Motorists are asked to exercise care and reduce speed while driving around and 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, 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 website.
Questions and concerns may be directed to David Boesch, Chief of Construction with the Kane County Division of Transportation, at (630) 845-7875.
