KDOT Begins Silver Glen Road at Randall Road Intersection Improvement

Construction for the Silver Glen Road at Randall Road Intersection Improvement is scheduled to begin the week of Monday, June 21, weather permitting.

Work will be located on the northeast corner of Silver Glen Road at Randall Road. Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and will require temporary daily lane closures, and may have flaggers directing traffic for the safety of the workers and the travelling public.

The shoulder area of westbound Silver Glen Road will have a temporary concrete barrier wall installed to protect workers. Work will consist of adding a right turn lane on the east leg of Silver Glen Road and includes earth excavation, placement of aggregate subgrade, resurfacing, and storm sewer installation.

All work is anticipated to take four months to complete, weather permitting.

Visit the Kane County Division of Transportation Traffic Advisories webpage for more information on road closures, detours, and active KDOT projects.

Motorists should expect delays while traveling through the work areas, consider alternate routes and expect additional commute time.

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.

Project Overview

The Kane County Division of Transportation is developing plans to construct a westbound-to-northbound right turn lane at the intersection of Randall Road and Silver Glen Road in the village of South Elgin.

In recent years, shifting traffic patterns have led to an increased demand for this right turn movement, resulting in excessive queueing at the east leg of the intersection. The purpose of the project is to improve the overall capacity of the intersection while specifically addressing the peak hour delays on the east approach.

Lane shifts will be used to maintain all lanes and movements through the intersection during construction, but some short-term daytime lane closures may be necessary.

Construction is expected to begin in the Spring of 2021.
