Quentin Road Widening Construction Could Start in 2015

Lake County Division of Transportation updates Lake Zurich community on widening of Quentin Road to four lanes.


Quentin Road has more than 21,000 vehicles traveling on it on an average day, according to a 2009 study, and that number is expected to increase, according to the Lake County Division of Transportation.

 The county recently held an open house at Lake Zurich High School to gather public input on the widening of Quentin Road from, Rte. 12 to Rte. 22.

The county is proposing to widen Quentin Road from two to four lanes, plus a 12-foot median.

County transportation officials said the Quentin Road project aims to accomplish three main goals: improve safety, accommodate future traffic increases and enhance bike and pedestrian access, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The upgrades include a bike path along the east side of Quentin Road and a sidewalk along the west side of Quentin Road, according to the Barrington Sun-Times.

Noise walls are planned on the west side of Quentin Road; crosswalks are planned at two Cuba Road intersections, according to Chuck Gleason, project manager of Phase 1.

According to a timeline, depending upon federal funds, construction on the project would start in 2015.

So the Kildeer residents on the east side of Quentin get a noise wall on their side? Who pays for that? If it's not private funds, why does just that one side get a noise wall at taxpayer expense, and just that stretch? It seems the homes in Bristol Trails are closer to the thoroughfare than the McMansions strewn along Kildeer, so shouldn't they receive the benefits of noise barriers?
