Good Morning Schaumburg Recap

Good Morning Schaumburg Recap

Despite the frigid weather this morning, Good Morning Schaumburg brought in almost 200 attendees! Not to mention, we were fortunate enough to kick off 2016 by having Mayor Al Larson as the special guest speaker.

Among Mayor Larson were 3 panelists that answered questions about what to expect in 2016. Panelists were Matt Frank (Village of Schaumburg), Lisa Timbo (Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel), and Karyn Robles (Village of Schaumburg). Much of what was asked dealt a lot with roadway and bikeway projects because, as we all know, there's only two seasons in the Chicago land, winter and construction. Ha! Not really, but it sure seems like it.

So, what did we learn from the panelists?

Roadway projects

  • The I-90 corridor project aims to work through winter as they prepare for bridge beam installation as well as new pavement.
  • Pavement reconstruction of Woodfield Road from Meacham Road to Martingale Road.
  • Pavement rehabilitation of Salem Drive between Golf Road and Bode Road.

Bikeway projects

  • Golf Road bike path- a bituminous side path will be constructed along the north side of the road
  • Completing gaps for bike paths along Higgins Road 

 

We also heard from Lisa Timbo that the Renaissance Convention Center will undergo renovations. There will be 2 phases to the renovations. The first phase which will take 2-3 months consists of carpet replacement in the meeting rooms and banquet space as well as renovation of the Winter Garden Cafe. Phase two will take longer as it consists of renovating all guest rooms, suites, elevators, corridors and a remodel of the club lounge.

While many renovations are being taken care of be sure to keep an eye out for other changes, amidst the construction of course. The Zurich office towers may see some new faces after relocation and Motorola Solutions will be subdividing and selling its location by Meacham and Algonquin Roads.
