Resurfacing of Smith Street Work is Scheduled to Start the Week of
April 15

The Smith Street improvement project is two miles of roadway resurfacing from Palatine Road to Dundee Road; also included in the project are improvements and upgrades to sidewalk crossings, handicap ramps at the intersections, and curb and gutter removal and replacement.
The purpose of this project is to improve the safety and traffic operations for the motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists that use Smith Street - as well as to ensure deteriorating pavement and sidewalks meet current standards and requirements.
Construction is scheduled to begin the week of April 15th and be completed by late summer.  Smith Street will be accessible throughout the course of the project; two lanes of traffic (one in each direction) will be maintained as well as access to driveways and parking lots.
Questions please contact Public works at 847-705-5200.


IDOT Resurfacing of Palatine Road to Begin April 15

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be resurfacing Palatine Road from Northwest Highway (Route 14) to Rand Road (Route 12) in Arlington Heights. Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 15, 2019, depending on weather.
Concrete curb removal and replacement will start in the outside east-bound lane at Route 14 moving east towards Route 12. Once complete, concrete work in the outside west-bound lane will begin at Route 12 heading west to Route 14. The cycle will repeat to complete the median curbs in the inside lanes. Pavement resurfacing will start after the curbs are finished.
For more information regarding this public improvement project, please contact IDOT at (847) 705-4000.
