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. 

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.
