In addition to the regular patching and overlaying jobs, the only project IDOT has notified the Village of is the addition of two turn lanes at the intersection of Buffalo Grove and Dundee Road. The turn lanes will be for westbound Dundee Road to northbound Buffalo Grove Road and southbound Buffalo Grove Road to westbound Dundee Road. The project was awarded to Alliance Contractors in September 2016.
The contractor intends to start work on the Buffalo Grove Road and Dundee Intersection project on March 13th, 2017. The contractor is permitted to work for 70 working days which does not compute a finite completion date but does indicate it should finish around July 11th, 2017.
During construction westbound traffic on Dundee Road, east of Buffalo Grove Road will maintain two lanes of traffic and a turn lane to travel south on Buffalo Grove Road. Southbound traffic on Buffalo Grove Road will also maintain two lanes of traffic and a turn lane to travel east on Dundee Road. All other legs of the intersection will remain unchanged. The contractor is permitted to close lanes of traffic but NOT within the hours of 7:00AM to 9:00AM and 4:00PM to 6:00PM Monday through Friday. Sidewalks will also be closed in the area and signage in will direct travelers around the intersection.
This project is under IDOT control and supervision. IDOT can be reached at 847-705-4227 for inquiries pertaining to the project.
