Longmeadow Parkway construction to close part of White Chapel Road intersection

ALGONQUIN – The north part of White Chapel Road at Longmeadow Parkway will be closed for two to three weeks starting Friday to allow for construction crews to place new pavement.

Drivers should find alternative routes during the construction and avoid the intersection when possible, according to a news release from the Kane County Division of Transportation.

Access will be allowed to the south part of the intersection.

The Longmeadow Parkway project is a proposed four-lane, 5.6-mile toll road and a four-lane Fox River bridge crossing that runs from Huntley Road to Route 62. The project is meant to relieve traffic congestion and to encourage economic development in portions of Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills, according to the release.

The section of the controversial $115 million road project being worked on now stretches from Randall Road to Karen Drive and is expected to cost about $13 million.

Algonquin trustees approved extending the hours Aug. 1 for contractors to work on Longmeadow Parkway for two weeks, which officials said would help with completing the project faster and lessening the effect on residents.

Additional information can be found on the Longmeadow Parkway page of the Kane County Division of Transportation website.
