It might be February, but work continues to improve the intersection of Randall Road and Stearns Road/McDonald Road.

The Kane County Division of Transportation announced today (Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020) that workers will begin installation of permanent traffic signals at that intersection as well as the intersection of McDonald Road and Briargate Drive, beginning the week of Feb. 3.

Temporary daily lane closures and flaggers will direct traffic for the safety of the workers and the travelling public between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

KDOT officials said the work may take up to two weeks to complete, depending on the weather.

Motorists should expect long delays while traveling through the work areas and should add time to their commutes. Motorists 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.

Motorists may want to consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.

KDOT officials remind drivers that it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.

Questions and concerns may be directed to David Sitko at 630-313-0754.
