Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor

The Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Bridge Corridor is a proposed four-lane Fox River Bridge crossing and four-lane arterial roadway corridor with a median, approximately 5.6 miles in length, designed to alleviate traffic congestion in northern Kane County.

The proposed road passes through portions of the Villages of Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills, as well as unincorporated areas of Kane County. The western terminus is at Huntley Road west of Randall Road, approximately 1,300 feet northwest of the Huntley/Boyer intersection. From Huntley Road to the Fox River, the corridor primarily traverses mostly undeveloped properties or new subdivisions; these subdivisions were developed with a dedicated right-of-way to accommodate the proposed corridor. After crossing the river, the corridor parallels existing Bolz Road, to the eastern project terminus at Illinois Route 62.

The Village of West Dundee, along with Kane County, McHenry County, Carpentersville, Algonquin, East Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts and Huntley have passed resolutions in support of the bridge/corridor over the course of many years since the project began.

Below are some key pieces of information regarding the Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor:

- The Rt. 72 (West Dundee), Main St. (Carpentersville) and Rt. 62 (Algonquin) bridges are currently double their capacity.

- Population west of the Fox River is expected to increase 150,000 by 2040, further impacting traffic congestion and the resulting effects on the economy and community.

- There have been no new river crossings been built in Northern Kane County since the I-90 Tollway Bridge in the 1960's.

- The project location has been approved by the IL Dept. of Natural Resources and the Army Corp of Engineers and is the only approved bridge location between Carpentersville and the McHenry County line.

- More than $35 million has been spent on engineering and land acquisition and 60% of the land has been purchased, to date.

- The project will bring 4000+ jobs to Kane County.

A detailed history and current status and information about the project can be viewed at http://www.co.kane.il.us/dot/foxBridges/longmeadowPkwy.aspx.

Downtown Redevelopment Plan Presentation

Over the past 12 months, the Village of West Dundee has been working with Hitchcock Design Group, Business Districts, Inc. and community stakeholders to evaluate the assets, opportunities, community feedback and potential strategies that impact the past, present and future of downtown West Dundee.

The Project Task Force, comprised of West Dundee residents, officials and business owners, has worked hand in hand with the consultant team during this time to develop the Downtown Redevelopment Final Report, a copy of which is available at the project website, www.wdundeedowntown.com.

This report was formally presented to the Village Board at their April 13, 2015 meeting, and adoption of the plan is anticipated at the April 20 Board Meeting. The Downtown Redevelopment Plan as presented provides a conceptual framework for recommended policy, operational, capital and private property improvements to enhance the downtown environment.

The Village of West Dundee would like to thank all community stakeholders who participated in the planning process, including the Task Force Members, those who met one-on-one with the consultant team, workshop attendees and survey responders. We are excited to reach this final stage of the planning process and look forward to utilizing the recommendations and insights provided to facilitate the betterment of the downtown environment.
