KDOT Starts Crack Sealing June 7 on 11 County Roads

It’s time to fix the cracks on 11 Kane County roads, and you can expect to see the improvements — and the traffic delays — starting the week of June 7, 2021.

Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday for six to eight weeks.

According to a news release from the Kane County Division of Transportation, routing and crack sealing will begin on portions of the below-listed roads.

  • I.C. Trail / Sauber Road / Lees Road from IL Route 64 to IL Route 47
  • West County Line Road from Perry Road to IL Route 38
  • Harmony Road from Allen Road to Getty Road
  • Orchard Road from 570 feet south of I-88 to Tanner Road
  • Allen Road from County Line Road to 170 feet east of Harmony Road
  • Fabyan Parkway from 1,650 feet east of Kirk Road to  345 feet east of Louis Bork Dr. / County Line
  • Corron Road from 70 feet north of McDonald Road to Bowes Road
  • Keslinger Road from 380 feet west of Bartelt Road to Randall Road
  • Silver Glen Road from Corron Road to Randall Road
  • Main Street Road from Harter Road to 790 feet west of IL Route 47
  • Meredith Road from McNulty Road to I.C. Trail

The crack sealing program is part of the county’s annual comprehensive road maintenance program to increase the longevity of the roads by sealing road cracks, which prevents water from penetrating the road base and reducing the life of the pavement.

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

As the routing process may generate dust which can become airborne in windy conditions and water cannot be used to control this as it adversely affects the crack filling, drivers may want to avoid the roads while routing is being performed.

Motorists are asked to reduce their speed, watch for construction workers and vehicles entering and leaving the site and obey flaggers and traffic control devices. It is illegal to talk or text on a cell phone while driving.
