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.

IDOT Planned Work In / Near Hoffman Estates

The following IDOT projects are currently in various stages of development by the State:

New!Higgins Road Bridge Repairs begin April 13, 2020

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that a bridge deck overlay with joint repairs on Higgins Road (Illinois 72) over the CN Railroad in Hoffman Estates will begin, weather permitting, Monday April 13.

In order to complete the work, westbound Higgins Road between just west of Sutton Road (Illinois 59) and just after the railroad bridge will be reduced to one lane.  The work is expected to be completed in June.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.  Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

New!Pipeline Maintenance along Higgins Road to begin April 13, 2020

The Village has been notified that pipeline maintenance will be occurring along Higgins Road (Illinois 72) near the intersection of Commonwealth Drive weather permitting, on Monday April 13.  This maintenance will result in a lane closure and crossover on Higgins Road, and is scheduled to last for approximately two months.  Signs will be posted during construction activities and we encourage community members traveling the area to watch for increased construction traffic.

Higgins Road Resurfacing from Commonwealth Drive to Glen Lake Road - Work to begin April 6, 2020

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that resurfacing of Higgins Road (Illinois 72) from Commonwealth Drive to Glen Lake Road in Hoffman Estates, passing through South Barrington and Schaumburg, will require daily, intermittent lane closures beginning, weather permitting, Monday, April 6, 2020.

In addition, motorists can also expect periodic overnight lane closures at the Sutton Road (Illinois 59) and Higgins Road intersection.  During that time, one lane in each direction will be maintained.  The project, which consists of resurfacing the 8-mile stretch of Higgins Road, constructing ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps and replacing deteriorating curbs, is expected to be completed in November.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.  Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering Study:
Algonquin to Central

IDOT is completing a Phase I preliminary 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 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 2020 with subsequent phases to follow as State funding allows.  IDOT plans to begin design engineering this year.

Golf Road / Barrington Road Preliminary Engineering

IDOT is in the early stages of a Phase I preliminary 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.

Higgins Road / Huntington Blvd Intersection Study

Another project which will be advancing through the use of safety funds is an intersection study at Higgins Road and Huntington Boulevard.  IDOT converted the left turn signal operations to allow left turns only on green arrows several years ago.  The upcoming project will be evaluating the intersection in more detail.

IDOT Multi-Year Program

IDOT has several projects listed in its current fiscal year 2020-2025 plan which are part of the Rebuild Illinois Program.  The projects are listed below along with where they fall in the State‚Äôs current program.  Details on these projects will be shared when more information becomes available.  Note the State's fiscal year goes from July 1 to June 30.
