Buffalo Grove Rd - From IL Rte 22 to Deerfield Pkwy
Crews will also connect the bike path gap between Aptakisic Road and Brandywyn Lane making it easier for residents to walk and bike to local parks, schools and shopping areas.
No road closures are expected. One lane of traffic will be open in each direction. Temporary lane closures may occur a few hours per day to complete major work.
Construction will take place over a two-year period using a staged approach:
2020 - North Section: Focused construction on Buffalo Grove Road from IL22 to Aptakisic Road, with minor impacts south of Aptakisic.
2021 - South Section: Focused construction on Buffalo Grove Road from Aptakisic Road to Deerfield Pkwy. This includes intersection improvements at Buffalo Grove Road and Aptakisic Road, which will extend to slightly north of Aptakisic.
5/28/2020 - Crews have completed temporary pavement construction on the west side of Buffalo Grove Rd from just south of IL22 to Aptakisic Rd.
Tomorrow, southbound traffic will be shifted onto the new temporary pavement. Northbound traffic will remain in its current lane. This will allow pre-stage median work such as storm sewer installation and temporary pavement to be installed. Once median work is completed, northbound traffic be directed onto the west side of Buffalo Grove Rd, so the east half of the new pavement can be constructed.
Traffic impacts: Watch for workers and flaggers working in the median. Watch for trucks coming in and out of the jobsite.
