Aptakisic Rd


Project Limits:  Aptakisic Road between Illinois Route 83 and Buffalo Grove Road in the villages of Long Grove and Buffalo Grove.

Description: Scheduled work of a new 5-lane roadway cross-section includes: 

  • Two travel lanes in each direction
  • A road median with left-turn lanes
  • New multi-use path on the north side of Aptakisic Road
  • New sidewalk on the southside of Aptakisic Road

Project Background: The Aptakisic Road study area is comprised of approximately 1.2 miles from Illinois Route 83 on the west to Buffalo Grove Road on the east and contains a mixture of residential, commercial and institutional land uses. The existing roadway varies from a two-lane rural section to multi-lane urban sections near the Illinois Route 83 and Buffalo Grove Road intersections. LCDOT has identified that current traffic volumes in this corridor are near the capacity of the existing roadway, and that additional development and lack of alternate routes will add to capacity demands. The Aptakisic Road Widening Project was categorically excluded from further National Environmental Policy Act Processing and the design as presented in the Project Development Report was approved by IDOT Central Office Bureau of Local Roads and Streets on August 22, 2016, concluding the Phase I Study process.

Current Information

The contractor also plans on fine grading the new aggregate road base and will begin paving asphalt on the north side of Aptakisic Rd toward the end of the week.

Traffic Impacts: Watch for workers and please be cautious of trucks coming in and out of the jobsite.
