This multi-jurisdictional project involves upgrading Huntley Road from a two-lane roadway to a reconstructed five-lane roadway, as a joint effort between the Villages of West Dundee and Carpentersville. West Dundee’s portion of the project spans from Sleepy Hollow Rd to Elm Ave, with Carpentersville continuing the project east to Route 31. The improvements are expected to reduce travel times by improving traffic flow and reducing conflicts.
Federal funding assistance totaling $7,500,000 has been granted to meet the nearly $11,000,000 project cost. The Village of West Dundee’s funding obligation of $1,700,000 was secured and committed through the refinancing and issuance of a General Obligation Bond in 2015. The Village of Carpentersville has the same local share obligation.
This project has been delayed through the process of acquiring the necessary right-of-way parcels. Bid letting is now anticipated for this spring, with construction expected to begin this summer. It is expected that this major roadway project will be substantially completed about 18 months after of the initiation of construction.
