Starting the week of May 13, 2019, Kane County will begin the process of updating pedestrian crossings to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

Each crossing will have the sidewalks and curbs replaced with depressed curbs, detectable warnings, and wheelchair accessible slopes. Each crossing will be closed for up to five days at a time to allow for concrete removal, replacement, and curing.

A list of the crossings that will be improved are listed below in no specific construction order. Signs indicating start dates will be posted at each route approximately one week prior to starting construction at the crossing.

Construction work hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday for approximately three months, weather permitting.

(Main Street refers to the Main Street in Batavia.)

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

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 it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while traveling through a highway construction work zone.
