Hart Rd at US Route 14 Improvement

Description: This project will improve safety and operations at the at-grade railroad crossing and intersection. The project also includes improved and additional channelization at the intersection.

Background: This is a joint project with the Village of Barrington, as they funded and led the Phase 1 completed in 2013. The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) is funding and leading Phases 2 and 3 of the project. The proposed improvements along Hart Road include adding turn lanes along both legs of the intersection, constructing a median, sidewalk, and 8’ multi-use path. No new through lanes will be constructed, but the south approach will include a right turn lane and dual left turn lanes, and the north approach will include a left and right turn lane. Improvements to US Route 14 include a right turn lane on both legs. Proposed pedestrian enhancements include sidewalks, a multi-use path on Hart Road and US Route 14, and traffic signal enhancements to safely cross the roads and railroad tracks.
