Current Construction Information – Updated March 1, 2019 

Grove and Dundee Intersection Improvements
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) recently awarded a construction contract for improvements along Dundee Road. This work includes traffic signal installation at the intersection of Grove Avenue and Dundee Road (Route 68) and roadway improvements at and surrounding this intersection. It also includes multiuse path installation along the north side of Dundee Road from the Barrington Middle School Prairie Campus west to Barrington Road. Current IDOT scheduling anticipates construction to begin this spring and be complete by the end of the year.  

Nicor Gas Main Modernization
Nicor Gas is utilizing their Investment In Illinois initiative to modernize aging natural gas infrastructure around the state. As part of this work, Nicor has determined that infrastructure in Jewel Park requires this modernization.

Nicor anticipates to be complete with gas main installation in Jewel Park by the first week in March. After this installation is complete, crews will work to test and fill this main. Following this work, a service crew will begin to install new services and a cross tie crew will work behind them to start scheduling appointments with home owners to switch over their gas services to the new service lines.

Prior to new service installations, Nicor has asked that homeowners mark or notify them of any dog fences or private utility lines that may be between the roadway and their gas service connection point. For assistance in marking or providing this information, please contact Jim Snively at or 630-918-0867. Homeowners in Jewel Park can expect to receive direct communication from Nicor schedulers in the next few weeks to coordinate service transfers. Nicor appreciates the patience and cooperation of homeowners throughout this process and notes that as soon as all service transfers have been scheduled and completed, they will coordinate project closure and exit the neighborhood.

Project related questions can be directed to Jim Snively at Nicor at or 630.918.0867
