Welcome to the Prairie Parkway Corridor Protection Study Website
This website was developed to provide information on the Corridor Protection Study underway in Grundy, Kendall and Kane counties between I-80 and I-88. These counties are located in northeastern Illinois approximately 40 miles west of Chicago.

The Corridor Protection Statute provides an important tool for responsible planning in areas of high growth because it allows the identification of future transportation facilities prior to costly and conflicting development of land. This protection provides benefits to the environment, property and business owners and the traveling public. Unnecessary environmental impacts can be avoided because the corridor protection process can be done early before land development forecloses options that avoid environmentally sensitive areas. Residents and business owners can make informed decisions about their property and plan for future infrastructure that will service their needs. For the traveling public, corridor protection provides the opportunity to have transportation alternatives delivered more cost effectively.
