Road construction activities will begin on Huntley Road from about 500 feet northeast of Galligan Road to about 300 feet east of Square Barn Road, and on Galligan Road at Huntley Road to about 1,300 feet south of the intersection in unincorporated Gilberts, Kane County.

During the work, there may be temporary single lane closures with flaggers directing traffic. Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This work is anticipated to take five months to complete, weather permitting.

The initial work will include setting up erosion and traffic controls, storm sewer work, and installation of temporary pavement. Completion of this first stage of work is targeted for mid-summer, weather permitting.

Once this initial stage is complete, construction activities will focus on the placement of additional pavement and installation of the new traffic signal. A new press release and additional signage will be provided prior to any new traffic pattern changes due the construction activities or installation of the traffic signal.

The above-mentioned roads will remain open during construction, but may be reduced to one lane of travel using temporary daily lane closures.
