Daily Herald report

The road improvement project at Northwest Highway and the Arthur and Davis intersection in Arlington Heights is complete with the area reopening to traffic earlier this week.

Safety at the railroad crossing at Arthur Avenue and Northwest Highway as well as at the Prindle Avenue underpass was the reason behind the $5 million roadway project that was just completed after 13 years of planning, design, and negotiating with state, federal and Union Pacific authorities.

The cost of this long-awaited roadway improvement project is split between $4 million from federal sources and $1 million of village funding.

Improvements include widened railroad crossings, updated curbs and gutters, different turn lanes, extension of the bike path and new signs, traffic lights and streetlights.
