IDOT Projects and Information
The Illinois Department of Transportation publishes a multi-year transportation improvement plan. This is the blueprint for projects planned for the State highway system. Six plan years are typically included with the first or current year showing projects for which funds have been programmed.
The State's webpage for road construction and travel information can be used as a resource for everything from travel conditions to traffic counts to special programs. The website is shown below and can be accessed by clicking the link.
In addition, you can check these other state websites to find out more on other IDOT activities.

The following IDOT projects are currently in various stages of development by the State:
Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering Study:
Algonquin to Central
IDOT is conducting a Phase I engineering study of Barrington Road between Algonquin Road on the north and Central Road on the south. The basic scope is to reconstruct the pavement and widen to a consistent 4 lanes within the project limits. A new off-road path on the west side of Barrington Road from Algonquin Road to Central Road is planned along with drainage improvements.. The path will link the Algonquin Road trail to the new bicycle and pedestrian facilities at the Barrington Road interchange which also serve the I-90 / Barrington Road transit station. The Phase I study is targeted for completion in 2019 with subsequent phases to follow as State funding allows.
Golf Road / Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering
IDOT is in the early stages of a Phase I engineering study to address capacity and safety issues at this intersection. The general scope is to provide additional left turn capacity on Golf Road at Barrington Road and to convert the signal operation to allow left turns only on a green arrow. Pedestrian improvements to create improved crossings on all four legs of the intersection and some path work in the Forest Preserve are envisioned. Village staff is providing information in support of IDOT's work. Updates will be posted as more information becomes available.
