The Village Board of Trustees has awarded a contract to Christopher Burke Engineering Ltd. of Rosemont, IL to study the three closely spaced intersections involving Rand Road, Central Road and Mount Prospect Road as well as the nearby Rand Road corridor.  The intersections form a triangle that experiences traffic issues on a daily basis such as blocked intersections and poor vehicle progression.  Timing adjustments have been made over the years by the Illinois Department of Transportation with only minor improvement.  The Village of Mount Prospect is committed to developing a plan that will provide long-term enhancements to the area transportation system that will benefit motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and nearby businesses.  The study will not only consider improvements to the intersections and roadways but also improvements to sidewalk and bike paths, driveways to businesses, lighting, and drainage. 

The Village’s consultant is currently collecting data and developing various alternative designs.  We also want your input.  A questionnaire is available on this webpage to provide us your comments.  Your input will assist us during the design phase of this important project.  The Village will also host an Open House to give the community an opportunity to provide input.  Feel free to stop by anytime between 6:00pm and 8:00pm on Thursday, August 10th in the Community Center Room at Village Hall.  It will be an opportunity to view preliminary designs and interact with the consultant and Village staff. 

The study will follow federal project development procedures in coordination with the Illinois Department of Transportation.  It is expected to be completed with a preferred design in the fall of 2018.  The Village will then look for federal and state grant opportunities to fund both engineering plan development and construction.  A timetable has not yet been established for these phases of the project.

Please complete the online questionnaire listed below to let us know how we can improve the intersection.
