Hart Rd _ Flint Creek closure aerial CONSTRUCTION ALERT 
Lake County to Close Hart Road at Flint Creek Beginning Thursday, June 2
Hart Rd @ Flint Creek closure aerial


The Lake County Department of Transportation (LCDOT) will close Hart Road beginning June 2 in order to replace the pipes that currently carry Flint Creek under Hart Road with a new bridge structure this summer. This will facilitate the construction of multi-use path connectivity between Route 14 and Hart Road.

The bridge will be located on Hart Road just north of the Barrington High School football field. Removal of the existing pipes and construction of the new bridge requires a full closure of Hart Road at the Creek crossing for the duration of construction, however, local access to the signalized entrance/exit drive on Hart Road at Barrington High School and the Hart Road Office Buildings and Barrington High School Field of Dreams will remain open throughout the duration of construction. Please see the detour map above which will be in effect starting on June 2.

This new structure will be built to include an 8-foot multi-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians, which will accommodate the Village's Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) multi-use path extension along Hart Road and Main Street also proposed to be constructed this year. LCDOT is coordinating this work with the Village and School District and will be sharing updates on their project webpage here: lakecountyil.gov/4674/Hart-Rd 

While road closures are never ideal, the Village looks forward to the completion of the bridge and the Village's multi-use path work this year which will greatly improve pedestrian and bicyclist connectivity and safety within the community!

MAIN STREET RESURFACING WORKS CONTINUES

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be resurfacing Main Street throughout the Village from just west of Hart Road to just east of Ela Road starting this week. This work includes reconstruction of sidewalk at intersections, some curb improvements, and removal and replacement of the asphalt pavement.

Work is anticipated to commence with concrete removals and replacements, resulting in some temporary sidewalk closures. IDOT plans to stage this work so sidewalk will be improved on the north and south sides of Main Street separately to allow for pedestrian detours on the opposite side of the street throughout construction. Pedestrian detour signage will be in place during this work.

While there may be intermittent roadway lane closures which will be facilitated with flaggers during paving operations, 2-way traffic will be maintained throughout the work zone during the project.

The Village will continue to provide updates from IDOT as this work progresses at barrington-il.gov and on Facebook.
