Project Update - April 2019

The Village is holding a public information meeting for the Phase I Engineering Study.  The purpose of the meeting is to seek public input on the proposed roadway improvement.

The public meeting will be held:

Date: Wednesday, May 1, 2019
Time:  6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location:  Village Hall Community Room, 50 South Emerson Street

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. Interested persons may visit any time between 6:00 and 8:00pm.  Attendees will have the opportunity to review exhibits, provide comments and meet with Village Staff and engineering consultant representatives.

The Village is seeking comments on the proposed alternative Overall Exhibit-Mount Prospect , Overall Exhibit Bike Path view.  Additional Exhibits will be posted in the coming weeks.  If you would like to provide comments, but are not able to provide comments at the meeting please complete the following Comment Card.  Completed comment cards can be email or mailed to address listed on the comment card.


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 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 spring of 2019.  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.
