New Section of the Longmeadow Parkway - Now Open to Traffic!!

The Kane County Division of Transportation is pleased to announce that Longmeadow Parkway from Huntley/Boyer Road east to White Chapel Lane is NOW OPEN TO TRAFFIC!

Including the following improvements:

  • the reconstruction and widening of Longmeadow Parkway from Randall Road to White Chapel Lane is complete
  • the temporary traffic signals are functional at the Longmeadow Parkway at Randall Road intersection and at the Longmeadow Parkway at Sleepy Hollow Road intersection.

During 2018, asphalt surface paving will occur on Randall Road, along with the installation of permanent traffic signals at Randall and Sleepy Hollow Roads and extensive landscaping improvements.

IDOT recently awarded construction contracts for two more sections of Longmeadow Parkway:

  • Section B-2 from White Chapel Lane to east of IL 31 - targeting October 2019 completion
  • Section D from east of IL 25 to IL 62 and along IL 62 - targeting June 2019 completion

The last remaining segment, Section C from east of IL 31 to east of IL 25 (and new Fox River Bridge), will proceed to the construction phase once all toll bridge studies and right of way acquisition are complete (5 parcels remain) anticipated from 2018 through 2020.

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/Boyer 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 regarding the project is available on the Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor website at http://www.co.kane.il.us/dot/foxBridges/longmeadowPkwy.aspx.
