The Illinois Department of Transportation publishes a multi-year transportation improvement plan.  This is the blueprint for projects planned for the State highway system.  Six plan years are typically included with the first or current year showing projects for which funds have been programmed. 

The State's webpage for road construction and travel information can be used as a resource for everything from travel conditions to traffic counts to special programs.  The website is shown below and can be accessed by clicking the link.

In addition, you can check these other state websites to find out more on other IDOT activities.

The following IDOT projects are currently in various stages of development by the State. 

Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering Study - Algonquin to Central
IDOT is conducting a Phase I engineering study of Barrington Road between Algonquin Road on the north and Central Road on the south.  The basic scope is to remove the two lane section of road between Mundhank and Algonquin.  Pavement widening, reconstruction, drainage, and related changes are being developed.  Provisions for a sidepath on one side of Barrington Road between Algonquin Road and Central Road are also to be evaluated.  If this path is completed, the Algonquin Road path would be linked to the path on Barrington Road south of Central Road being built with the Barrington Road full interchange project.  The Phase I study is targeted for completion in 2017 with subsequent phases to follow when funding allows.

Golf Road / Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering
IDOT is in the early stages of collecting information for a Phase I engineering study to address capacity and safety issues at this intersection.  Village staff is providing information in support of IDOT's work.  Updates will be posted as more information becomes available.

IL 59 Pavement Patching - North Avenue to I-90
In 2017, IDOT plans to begin a concrete patching project on IL 59.  The scope is expected to be similar to the project completed on Algonquin Road several years ago.  In that work, sections of concrete were removed and precast panels were placed to make the repair.  Lanes closures and traffic impacts are likely so please watch for IDOT message signs on the road as the project starts up.

IL 59 Resurfacing Project - Barrington Road to Higgins Road
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that lane closures will take place on Illinois 59 between Barrington Road and Higgins Road, in Barrington, Barrington Hills and South Barrington, beginning, weather permitting, the week of Monday, April 10.  The closures are necessary for a resurfacing project on Illinois 59.

In order to complete the work, daytime lane closures will take place on Illinois 59 from Barrington Road to just north of Higgins Road.  Illinois 59 will be reduced to one lane with flaggers during construction activities.  The closures will avoid off-peak traffic times when possible. 

The scope of the project consists of resurfacing and patching.  The project is expected to be completed in Summer 2017.  Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.  Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
