Village of Schaumburg

Progress Parkway

Schaumburg, IL

Progress Parkway is a fitting name for the new roadway built to serve a new 225-acre, multi-use development that is symbolic of the economic progress happening in the Village of Schaumburg. This new development, known as the Veridian Campus, is located on the old Motorola campus bordered by I-90, Algonquin Road and Meacham Road. The campus plan includes residences, office space, dining, a hotel, entertainment venues, and urban style street retail districts.

To accommodate the projected growth and traffic in this area, the Village needed to build a connector road connecting Algonquin Road and Meacham Road. That new roadway, now called Progress Parkway, included 0.75 miles of new roadway pavement, new street lighting, drainage improvements, a multi-use path, intersection improvements and more. It now successfully serves as a main thoroughfare to what will become a new economic hub for the Village and a popular destination for Chicago’s northwest suburbs and beyond. Benesch provided construction engineering services for the project.
