[ARCHIVED] Public Invited to Kane County’s Kirk Road Improvement Open House Oct. 28

The Kane County Division of Transportation (KDOT) is hosting a public meeting to provide an overview of proposed improvements scheduled for Kirk Road from Cherry Lane to Route 38.

People are invited to the open house-style meeting being held from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28 at The Well Church, 33W835 Cherry Lane, Geneva. The purpose of the meeting is to seek public input, provide an overview of the Kirk Road bridge preliminary engineering and environmental study as well to present the preliminary preferred alternative. The comprehensive study included an analysis of existing roadway conditions, capacity at turn lanes, median and lane widths, and intersection improvements at Route 38.

A continuous audio-visual presentation will provide an overview of the study. People will have an opportunity to view preliminary construction drawings, exhibits, provide comments and meet with KDOT and project study team representatives.

The Kirk Road bridge, built in 1974 spanning the Union Pacific railroad tracks, is in need of significant maintenance. Through the study, Kane County is seeking long-term transportation solutions that emphasize multimodal connectivity, address bridge design deficiencies, plan for future transportation needs and minimize impacts to the environment.

In addition to seeking feedback on the preliminary alternative, KDOT is seeking public comments on the use of property from the Forest Preserve District of Kane County for the associated Kirk Road improvements. The property is owned and operated by the Forest Preserve and is protected by the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966. Kane County intends to seek a de minimis impact finding from the Federal Highway Administration based on the project not adversely affecting the features, attributes or activities covered in the Act.
