The Schaumburg Transportation Committee will hear recommendations and updates on transportation projects tonight.

The Schaumburg Transportation Committee expects to hear recommendations and updates on transportation projects at tonight's meeting.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has announced its plans to improve IL Route 72, saying the Village of Schaumburg and the State of Illinois are responsible for 10 percent of the cost.

The village is also responsible for adding a section of new sidewalk and upgrading the traffic signals with emergency vehicle preemption devices. The Transportation Committee will hear the village manager's recommendation and discuss the project at 7 p.m. today, Feb. 2, in Conference Room B of the Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center, 101 Schaumburg Court.

Possible changes in the parking regulations on Bank Dr. and Perth Dr. will be discussed by the committee after hearing recommendations from village staff. The committee will also hear a report on the effect of the Village of Roselle's railroad quiet zone on the village's future plans for a second access to the Schaumburg Metra Station. At this time, it is only an informational report -- no action will be taken regarding the future construction.

Updates on the current road construction projects in the village will be presented to the committee, as well.

After hearing comments from the audience, the meeting will be adjourned. The next board meeting will be held on Feb. 9. The next Transportation Committee meeting is scheduled for March 2.
