The LPGA, Illinois State Police, Kane County Sheriff's Department and Sugar Grove Police are implementing a redesigned traffic plan for The Solheim Cup Golf event at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove. Due to the tremendous attendance at the event it has become necessary to re-evaluate the primary and secondary traffic routes. In order to meet the traffic demand 10 additional Illinois State Troopers, multiple programmable video message signs and new route signs will be put in place for Saturday morning.
The primary traffic route of I-88 or Rt 47 to Route 30 to Dugan Rd and onto Granart Rd will remain the same. A secondary route will be implemented have new signs put in place and will be staffed by law enforcement personnel. This route will divert traffic from Rt. 30 onto southbound Rt. 47. Traffic will continue south on Rt. 47 to Jericho Rd. At Jericho Rd traffic will turn west and continue along Jericho to Granart Rd. Traffic will turn east on Granart and will be directed into the parking lot. The LPGA has waived the $5 parking fee and changed the parking from hang tags to general parking in all lots.
ALL will call traffic must stay on Rt 30 in order to access the will call area. Click here for a map >>
