$40 million

Phase I and II Engineering

This landmark project was more than 25 years in the making from planning to approval.  A 5.5-mile corridor extending from Huntley Road to Algonquin Road (IL 62), this project created a new Fox River bridge crossing helping to alleviate northern Kane County congestion.  BLA designed the widening and extension of Longmeadow Parkway (B) located in the Village of Algonquin and unincorporated Kane County for 2.32 miles and the widening and reconstruction of both IL 31 and Sleepy Hollow Road for 0.81 miles; the project also included a new bridge for a grade separation carrying Longmeadow Parkway over IL 31, five multi-barrel box culverts and two solider pile retaining walls.
