Flashing Yellow Arrow – Traffic Signals on Randall Road

Randall Road between the intersections of Fabyan Parkway to Silver Glenn Road will soon undergo safety improvements in early 2015. Once constructed (planned for summer 2015), most traffic signals will begin using Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) indications in addition to the traditional steady Red, Yellow, and Green arrows.

Visit Randall Road (HSIP) for more information regarding this change and other project improvements.

Longmeadow Parkway over the Fox River Flyover Video

 
As part of the final design of the proposed Longmeadow Parkway over the Fox River bridge and approaches, the engineering team, led by Crawford Murphy and Tilly, assisted by Invision, developed a video to visualize a portion of the corridor. The video begins with a view of the south side of the Fox River bridge, moves to the proposed mixed use path overpass within the Brunner Family Forest Preserve, tracks in an easterly direction to the intersection of Longmeadow Parkway and the Bolz Road connector, then turns around heading in a westerly direction back over the bridge and finishing back at the Brunner Family Forest Preserve proposed mixed use path overpass.  Visit the Longmeadow Parkway webpage for additional information.

Illinois Tollway Update

A portion of the Fox River Trail in Elgin will be closed to bicycle and pedestrian access throughout the month of June to accommodate drainage system work as part of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) Fox River Bridge Project. The temporary closure of 1,000 feet of the Fox River Trail just north of the Fox River Bridge is scheduled to begin June 2. The closed section of the trail is adjacent to Duncan Avenue in Elgin, just north of the Fox River Bridge. The Illinois Tollway is reconstructing the bridge carrying I-90 over the Fox River as part of the $2.5 billion I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project. The local roadway closure has been coordinated with the City of Elgin and the Forest Preserve District of Kane County. Additional information can be found at www.illinoistollway.com.
