Transportation, Communications & Logistics

With a central location and extensive transportation network, Huntley is a desirable base for companies that need to connect employees and goods with the Chicago area, the country, and the globe.

Roadway Network

Huntley boasts one of the most modern, high capacity roadway networks in the Chicago area. The community's major north-south roadway, Illinois Route 47, has been completely reconstructed and expanded to 6 lanes at a cost of $24 million. In November 2013, work was completed on a $59 million, completely new, expanded 7-lane full-access interchange at the intersection of Interstate 90 and Illinois Route 47. And, improvements to the Algonquin Road and Kreutzer Road arterials in excess of $10 million have significantly enhanced traffic flow to other commercial areas. Only two states have more interstate miles than Illinois. While Huntley claims an excellent roadway network, Illinois lies at the heart of the nation's interstate highway system. In all, 2,169 miles of interstate highway serve Illinois.
