The Village has been notified of two road closures that may impact Barrington Hills residents. Please plan an alternate route, obey all construction signs and workers and proceed with caution.
Algonquin River Road
The Algonquin Township Road District will be closing a portion of Algonquin River Road in Barrington Hills on March 10th, beginning at 8:30 a.m. to install a culvert under the road. The work is anticipated to be completed and the road open to traffic before the evening rush hour. Details will be shared as they are released by the Road District.
Hart Road in Barrington
AT&T is closing Hart Road in Barrington to through traffic beginning Friday, March 20th at 8 p.m. The road is scheduled to reopen late Sunday, March 29th. The closure is necessary for AT&T to relocate fiber cables in preparation for the reconstruction and widening at the intersection of Hart Road and US Route 14. The Lake County Division of Transportation worked with AT&T to ensure this closure occurred during Barrington High School’s spring break.
Detour Route: US Route 14 to IL Route 59 to Lake Cook Road. Local traffic will have access to area homes, Barrington High School and the local businesses.
Project Details: This road closure is in preparation for construction to begin this year that will enhance safety and intersection operations in relation to the existing railroad crossing on Hart Road at US Route 14 in Barrington. Additional turn lanes will improve traffic flow, while a sidewalk, multi-use path, and traffic and railroad signal enhancements will allow pedestrians and non-motorized traffic to safely cross US Route 14 and the railroad tracks.
