The Kane County Division of Transportation is warning drivers of “longer than usual delays” for the next seven months while crews make improvements to the intersection of Randall Road and U.S. Route 20.
Work is scheduled to begin with staging, striping, temporary concrete barrier wall and rumble strip removal on U.S. Route 20 starting the week of May 27, 2019. The anticipated duration for the project is seven months.
Work will consist of the termination of Weld Road at Randall Road with the construction of a new access ramp from northbound Randall Road to eastbound U.S. Route 20 thereby reducing congestion and improving safety.
KDOT officials ask motorists to be cautious and be alert for equipment within the roadway shoulder areas and the workers walking within these areas.
“Since this is an existing busy intersection, longer than normal traffic delays are expected during construction,” officials said in a Thursday, May 23, news release.

Warning To Drivers
KDOT warns drivers to be prepared to reduce their speed, exercise caution, and be extra alert. Watch for construction workers, construction vehicles entering or leaving the site, and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices within the work zone.
Expect delays while traveling through the work areas. You may want to add additional time to your commute and consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.
KDOT reminds drivers that is illegal to talk on a cell phone or text while driving through a highway construction work zone. The minimum penalty for speeding in a work zone is $375.
