KDOT Begins Urethane Pavement Marking Program April 19

The Kane County Division of Transportation announced today (Tuesday, April 13, 2021) that the county’s annual Pavement Marking Program work will resume work the week of April 19, weather permitting.

The work includes installation of urethane pavement makings onto 15.2 miles of county highways as indicated on the map below.

According to the map, pavement markings will be applied on:

  • Fabyan Parkway, from Kirk Road to about 350 feet east of Louis Borke Drive.
  • Kirk Road, from Cherry Lane to Averill Circle.
  • Plank Road, from West County Line Road to about 3,495 feet east of Main Street.
  • Randall Road, from I-90 to Longmeadow Parkway.
  • Randall Road, from Bowes Road to about 275 feet north of Weld Road.
  • Randall Road, from Dean Street to Crane Road.
  • Randall Road, from Orchard Road to Glen Eagle Drive.

Temporary daily lane closures will be required from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday to safely accomplish this work. Lane closures are scheduled to start in the north end of the county, working their way south until all necessary lane lines have been restriped, weather dependent.

The north-to-south progression may change if weather impacts dictate alternate striping sequences.

The county’s typical process is to apply urethane pavement marking to the high-volume county highways. KDOT officials say the pavement marking project will improve the visibility of the lane markings for the motoring public.

The work is anticipated to be completed by the end of May.

Temporary flagger control of intersections will be required along the entire route in order to safely accomplish the required work. Please watch for workers, equipment on the roadway and shoulders, anticipate increased travel times and exercise caution while traveling in freshly painted areas.
