Now Available - Reevaluation Environmental Assessment for Longmeadow Parkway

As the design and construction efforts for the Longmeadow Parkway corridor continues, the Kane County Division of Transportation (KDOT), with the assistance of the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), has completed a Reevaluation Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project. The EA verifies information and data gathered and used in the original Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision, which approved the project, is still valid.  The EA has been posted to the KDOT webpage and the public is encouraged to review the document and provide feedback during the comment period.  A public hearing for the EA has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 30th from 4:00-8:00 p.m.  Learn more about the Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor on the project's website.

Impact Fee Update Public Process

An update to the Kane County Comprehensive Road Improvement Program (CRIP) or Impact Fee Program is currently underway.  State law governing road impact fees requires an update every five years.  The Kane County Impact Fee Advisory Committee started meeting in December 2015 and will work throughout 2016 and into 2017 to complete the update.  The Kane County Board will ultimately review and consider the update in 2017.

Randall Road - Flashing Yellow Arrow Update

Installation continues on Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) to traffic signals along Randall Road between the intersections of Fabyan Parkway and Silver Glen Road.  Most of the traffic signals in this area began using Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) indications in addition to the traditional steady Red, Yellow, and Green arrows during the later part of 2015, and work continues along this area to complete the project.  You may notice workers at intersections finalizing these improvements during 2016.

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.
