[ARCHIVED] Kane County’s Randall Road Traffic Signal Upgrades Continue at Keslinger & Williamsburg

Starting Nov. 18, Kane County’s Division of Transportation will begin the removal and replacement of traffic signal mast arms and equipment on Randall Road at Keslinger Road and Williamsburg Avenue in Geneva.

The work will require closure of the side streets indicated in the schedule below from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Randall Road traffic will be allowed to flow without stopping at the intersections while the traffic signals are being worked on during the days indicated below.

Motorists will not be allowed to turn off of Randall Road during the closure of the side streets and are advised to utilize Peck Road and Route 38 as alternate routes. Access to Delnor Hospital will be allowed at both the north and south entrances by traffic from west of Randall Road. While Keslinger Road is closed, access to the Delnor Hospital complex from Randall Road will be available at Williamsburg Avenue. While Williamsburg Avenue is closed, access to the Delnor Hospital Complex from Randall Road will be available from Keslinger Road. Only one intersection will be affected at a time in order to minimize the impact to motorists. Changeable message boards will be placed in several location to warn motorists to the intersection closings.

Here is Kane County’s Randall Road timeline and side street closure schedule:

• Keslinger Road – Wednesday, Nov. 18
• Williamsburg Avenue - Monday, Nov. 23

On the day of a closure, crews will be:

• Setting up barricades and traffic control to prevent access to the side street,
• Installing new wiring and equipment on the mast arms,
• Adjusting the wiring in the traffic controller cabinet,
• Testing the new equipment, and
• Removing the old equipment.

Temporary lane closures along Randall Road will be required to accomplish this work. Please watch for flaggers and workers while traveling through the construction zone. Motorists should expect delays and are advised to consider alternate routes during the project.

Upon completion of the work, the new traffic signals will include a flashing yellow left-turn arrow. This flashing yellow arrow will allow motorists to turn left after yielding to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. Traffic waiting to turn left will receive the protected left-turn with a green arrow while oncoming traffic has a red light. While both directions have a green light, drivers waiting to turn left will receive the flashing yellow arrow indicating that they may only turn when it safe to do so.

For more information regarding the project and flashing yellow arrows, visit Kane County’s website at the link below.

Questions and concerns about the Randall Road traffic signal project should be directed to Kane County Traffic Engineer Dave Boesch at 630-584-1170.
