Construction is under way this week (July 30, 2019) for the Fabyan Parkway at Kirk Road intersection reconstruction improvement Project, located on Fabyan Parkway from Kingsland Drive to Paramount Parkway, and on Kirk Road about 1,500 feet north and south of the intersection.
The Kane County Division of Transportation said additional turn lanes and through lanes will increase safety and improve traffic operations of the intersection.
The anticipated completion date for the project is Sept. 30, 2020, weather permitting.
The work consists of tree removal and replacement, earth excavation, storm sewer and drainage structures, water main relocation, hot-mix asphalt pavement, concrete pavement and sidewalk, curb and gutter installation, traffic signal modernization and lighting, shared use path and landscape restoration.
“Since this improvement is at an existing busy intersection, longer than normal traffic delays are expected during construction,” KDOT said in a news release.
Fabyan Parkway and Kirk Road will remain open during construction, but may include temporary daily lane closures and flaggers primarily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Motorists should expect delays while traveling through the work areas and should add additional time to their commutes.
Drivers are asked to reduce their speed, watch for construction workers and vehicles entering or leaving the site, obey flaggers and comply with traffic control devices within the work zone.
You may want to consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.
