Palatine Road between Brockway Street and Roselle Road experiences severe congestion during the morning and evening rush. Near-gridlock conditions occur on a daily basis along the stretch. The Village has started to study the problems faced by the corridor and eventually will propose solutions. Any proposed solution should allow for greater throughput and to provide relief to the surrounding neighborhoods, which experience a dangerous amount of cut-through traffic.
The following graphic shows what a five lane profile could look like along the corridor. Although 12 foot traffic lanes (and 14 foot on the outer lanes) were used, it could be possible that the profile within Palatine's central business district would be narrower, such as using 11 wide foot travel lanes.
