Main Street in Barrington Will CLOSE on Monday, July 10 for Up to Four Weeks.


A Small Portion of North Commuter Lot Will Also Close

Main Street in Barrington will be CLOSED at North Avenue (between Spring and Wool Streets) for up to four weeks beginning MONDAY, JULY 10. This closure has been previously communicated and is due to the ongoing Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project, which will be moving across Main Street during this time.

Main Street (Lake-Cook Road) will be FULLY CLOSED to all traffic between Spring Street and Wool Street during this time. A detour will route traffic around this closure utilizing Route 14 (Northwest Highway) and Route 59 (Hough Street).



Additionally, a portion of the NORTH COMMUTER LOT will be closed starting TUESDAY, JULY 11th at 1 a.m. (after the removal of the brat tent) and will be fenced and utilized for construction staging for at least the next few months. Please see the attached closure map for more information. Flyers with this information will be placed on the windshields of cars parked in the North Commuter Lot this Friday (7/7) and Monday (7/10).

The Village has worked in partnership with AT&T to offer additional public parking spaces in the AT&T lot at 430 E. Main Street during this construction. The two rows located on the west side of the AT&T lot will be signed as 3-hour shopper parking until 5:00 p.m. After 5:00 pm, there is no three-hour limit, however, no parking will be allowed overnight (2am-5am). Please note that the east side of this lot remains AT&T employee parking only.

We understand that road and parking lot closures in Barrington cause inconvenience to our residents. We appreciate your patience while we complete this important Village infrastructure project.
