NEWS RELEASE COURTESY OF THE KANE COUNTY DIVISION OF TRANSPORTATION
The Kane County Division of Transportation will be upgrading traffic signal equipment at 16 intersections along Randall Road from Fabyan Parkway to Silver Glen Road, starting the week of April 13, weather permitting. The work is anticipated to be completed in late fall of this year.
This project will be conducted in two stages. Stage one work, which will include upgrades to sidewalk, pedestrian crossings, and new traffic signal foundations should take approximately three to five working days at each intersection and may result in temporary day time lane closures and disruptions of traffic at the intersection.
Work will be done during the hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting, and will start at Glen Eagle Boulevard / Randall Road progressing northerly to Silver Glen Road / Randall Road intersection. Below are the 16 intersections listed in the anticipated order for traffic signal upgrades. This order is subject to modification and is for information purposes:
• Glen Eagle Dr / Randall Rd
• Christina Ln / Randall Rd
• Fargo Blvd / Randall Rd
• Keslinger Rd / Randall Rd
• Williamsburg Ave / Randall Rd
• Bricher Rd / Randall Rd
• IL Route 38 / Randall Rd
• Prairie St / Randall Rd
• Oak St / Randall Rd
• IL Route 64 / Randall Rd
• Dean St / Randall Rd
• Red Haw Ln / Randall Rd
• Crane Rd / Randall Rd
• Red Gate Rd / Randall Rd
• Bolcum Rd / Randall Rd
• Silver Glen Rd / Randall Rd
The second stage of work, which is anticipated to start in late summer, will involve the removal of existing traffic signal mast arms and the installation of a yellow flashing phase signal head to the existing traffic signals at all locations.
This work will require the temporary shutdown of traffic signals with the control of the intersections replaced by four-way stop signs for approximately four to six hours per intersection. During this work phase, traffic traveling through the intersections shall experience longer than normal traffic delays.
Motorists should expect delays during the first stage of the work and are encouraged to pay attention to temporary lanes closures and flaggers around the work area. Motorists may want to consider seeking alternate routes during the second stage portion of the traffic signal upgrades.
Any questions or concerns may be directed to John Guddendorf, Senior Construction Manager, with the Kane County Division of Transportation (KDOT) at 630-816-9671.
