The Village of Hoffman Estates, in partnership with the Illinois Tollway and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), is studying potential improvements to the Barrington Road interchange on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90).
The Barrington Road interchange is a vital highway point component for the Villages of Hoffman Estates and South Barrington, as well as Palatine, Schaumburg, Barrington and Hanover Townships. Barrington Road is a state-designated north-south Strategic Regional Arterial (SRA) in northern Cook County. SRA routes support the Chicago-area expressway system by handling larger volumes of traffic. The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway is part of Interstate 90, the longest interstate in the United States, covering a 77 mile segment of the Illinois Tollway system. The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway extends from near the Wisconsin border to the Kennedy Expressway. The Barrington Road interchange provides access for the SRA with the I-90 interstate system.
Public participation is an essential component of this study, which will follow the principles of Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) to facilitate public involvement. Meetings and conversations will be held with community leaders and "stakeholders". Public meetings will also be conducted during the planning process to solicit general input, answer questions, and address concerns. This website will provide information on the progress of the project, relevant project-related materials and details about upcoming public meetings, and opportunities to participate.
Other future projects within the project study area include the expansion of the Metra Star Line along I 90 corridor.
