The good new is that Randall Road is getting some much-deserved resurfacing, thanks to the Kane County Division of Transportation. The even-better news is that most of the work will be done at night, so that there’s less impact during peak traffic times.
According to a KDOT news release, construction for the annual county resurfacing program is scheduled to continue with paving on Randall Road between Crane Road and Thornwood Avenue starting the week of Sunday, May 16.
While the majority of the paving contract has been executed during normal construction hours, the work on Randall Road will be executed overnight from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. seven days a week for the duration of the project.
The nighttime work is anticipated to take about six weeks to complete.
“This work is being conducted at night to better serve our motoring public,” KDOT Project Manager Dave Sitko said. “The resurfacing process is part of our annual maintenance to increase the longevity of county roads.”
All work will require temporary daily lane closures and flaggers directing traffic for the safety of the workers and the travelling public.
Motorists should expect long delays while traveling through the work areas and should add time when planning their commutes. You may want to consider the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.
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.
