It may be February, but if the weather permits, foundation and electrical work for new street lights and traffic signals at the intersection of Randall Road at Weld Road/U.S. Route 20 will resume starting the week of Feb. 10.
According to a Feb. 5 Kane County Division of Transportation news release, the work may continue, around the snow and rain, on and off, for several months into the spring.
Additional work — including paving, traffic signal work, striping, ramp, and site restoration on Randall and Weld Roads — is still planned to resume in early 2020 with an anticipated completion date of June 2020.
“As the Randall Road/U.S. Route 20 intersection is a very busy interchange, longer than normal traffic delays should be expected,” the KDOT news release said.
Motorists should expect to add time to their commutes. KDOT officials ask drivers 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.
KDOT officials remind drivers that it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction work zone.
