Buffalo Grove Rd - From IL Rte 22 to Deerfield Pkwy

Description: Buffalo Grove Road from Deerfield Parkway to IL Route 22 will be completely reconstructed to provide two lanes of travel in each direction. This includes a center median and turn lanes at all major intersections. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Thompson Blvd. Crosswalks at each street crossing will be improved and upgraded to ADA standards.

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. 

Early in 2022, LCDOT asked the community for input on this project. Visit the project's virtual public forum page to see what the community said about the project.

Construction is taking place over a two-year period using a staged approach:
North Section: Focused construction on Buffalo Grove Road from IL22 to Aptakisic Road, with minor impacts south of Aptakisic.
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.


Current Information

5/9/2022 - The new traffic signals at the intersection of Thompson Blvd and Buffalo Grove Rd have been turned on. Median trees have been planted and landscape restoration work is in progress. Sidewalk work for the proposed crosswalk on Buffalo Grove Rd just south of Brandywyn Ln has been completed. The crosswalk will remain closed until posts and flashing beacons are installed (waiting on material delivery) and crosswalk is striped.

This week, crews plan on completing bike path on the east side of Buffalo Grove Rd south of Brandywyn near the proposed crosswalk and other miscellaneous asphalt items. They will also work on landscape restoration work and other punch list items.

Traffic Impacts: Watch for workers and flaggers and be aware of daily lane closures while crews are working on punch list items..
