South Arlington Heights Road Cooridor

Map of South Arlington CooridorThe South Arlington Heights Road Corridor Plan outlines the Village’s vision and strategies for improvements to this important Gateway to the Village. In adopting the 2015 Comprehensive Plan for the Village, this gateway was identified by the Board as a priority corridor to improve upon the many existing positive qualities that the corridor offers while improving the gateway through beautification, redevelopment, walkability, and by establishing an identity for the area.

The 1.2 mile long corridor begins at the southern border of the Village at the Jane Adams Tollway extending north to Noyes Street. The corridor consists of various commercial uses including 7 hotels with close to 1,000 rooms, which serve as an economic engine for the corridor. Unique to the corridor is the Mitsuwa Marketplace at Algonquin Road, which provides a marketplace for Japanese foods and retail items. In addition, the area is served by a full access interchange at I-90 and Arlington Heights Road, providing great access to the corridor. 

The Plan establishes recommendations to address current conditions and implement improvements to the corridor as the primary Gateway to the Village.  Please share any comments you have on the plan, or questions by emailing the Planning and Community Development Department.
