This multi-jurisdictional project involves upgrading Huntley Road from a two-lane roadway to a reconstructed five-lane roadway, as a joint effort between the Villages of West Dundee and Carpentersville. West Dundee is the lead agency for the portion of the project that spans from Sleepy Hollow Rd to Elm Ave.
Federal funding assistance totaling $7,500,000 has been granted to meet the nearly $11,000,000 project cost. The Village of West Dundee’s funding obligation of $1,700,000 was secured and committed through the refinancing and issuance of a General Obligation Bond in 2015. The Village of Carpentersville has the same local share obligation.
This project experienced several delays, including with acquisition of right-of-way parcels and utility relocatons. Bid letting was completed in the Spring of 2018, with a contract awarded to Plote Construction with site work beginning late that Summer. As of Spring 2020, this project is substantially complete.
In addition to the above project, concurrent roadway projects are taking place along Huntley Road from Elm to just past Lincoln Ave in Carpentersville, including the intersection of Huntley Road and Route 31. For more information about these projects, please visit the Current & Potential Construction Projects page of cville.org.
The improvements are expected to reduce travel times by improving traffic flow and reducing conflicts.
