Darrell Rd - From Case Rd to Fisher Rd

Description: Feasibility and conceptual design studies are currently underway for this two lane major collector connecting IL176 and IL120 through the village of Island Lake and Wauconda township. Under the jurisdiction of the Lake County Division of Transportation, it intersects with Case, Neville, Fisher and Dowell Roads within the project area.

The project consists of 3 intersection improvements along Darrell Road at Case Road/Neville Road, Dowell Road and Fisher Road. Case Road will be realigned to connect at a roundabout with Neville Road thus eliminating this offset intersection. Dowell Road will be realigned to join Darrell Road with a roundabout eliminating the existing skewed intersection. The Fisher Road intersection with Darrell Road will also be improved by adding a roundabout to replace the existing 1 way stop controlled intersection. Construction will also include a bike path between Fisher Road and Case Road/Neville Road and a portion will be a part of the Grand Illinois Trail. It is anticipated that these 3 intersections will be constructed in a 2-year phased approach starting in 2022, but is dependent on property acquisition and project readiness.
