Additional Turn Lanes and New Sidewalks Will Bring Increased Safety to this Intersection
Lake County has recently announced that the long-awaited intersection improvements at Hart Road and Route 14 will be sent out for construction bids this September, which means that construction at the intersection will likely begin as soon as school is out in summer 2020.
The improvements are expected to increase safety at this often-dangerous intersection by providing additional turn lanes, which will also reduce wait times during peak hours.
In addition, the project also includes additional sidewalk/bike path connectivity along Hart Road and Route 14, which will eventually connect Barrington High School to the Roslyn Road neighborhood and will later be extended to the south and along Main Street.
The project is being managed by Lake County and includes partnerships with the Village of Barrington, IDOT, Union Pacific Railroad, and the Army Corps of Engineers. Stay tuned for more to come!
