Press Release

Longmeadow Parkway - Randall Road to Karen Drive New Construction

Kane County Section No. 13-00215-10-PV

Starting Friday September 15, 2017, weather permitting, south bound traffic on Randall Road will be switched to the new pavement to allow crews access to the old lanes for removal and replacement. The north bound lanes of Randal Road will be similarly switched over the week of September 18, 2017 to allow crews access for removal and replacement.

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 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 and 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.
