Kane County Division of Transportation's Randall Road at Weld Road/US 20 Intersection Reconfiguration Project was awarded “Public Works Project of the Year" from the Fox Valley Branch of the American Public Works Association (APWA). The project was selected in the $5million to $25million cost category for transportation projects. The APWA Public Works Project of the Year Award promotes excellence in the management, administration and construction of public works projects.
The Randall Road at Weld Road/US 20 intersection reconfiguration project eliminated the east Weld Road at Randall Road connection to provide a new continuous flow ramp from northbound Randall Road to eastbound US 20. New signals and striping provide additional capacity for traffic along Randall Road and a safer driving experience for all motorists.
As part of incremental improvements to public safety, many traffic signals along Randall Road, including and between Fabyan Parkway and Silver Glen Road will be retimed to better distributing green time and move traffic more effectively. Specific additional enhancements will be noticed at the following traffic signals:
These additional enhancements will adjust when the left turn green arrow will display to traffic within the signal cycle. Motorists are encouraged to Watch Your Signal more carefully on the week of July 15th, 2019 and thereafter. This change in signal pattern or signal sequence is part of providing more effective movement of traffic along a signalized roadway, such as Randall Road. More information on this improvement can be reviewed within this presentation.
As part of incremental improvements to public safety, many traffic signals will be modified to include Flashing Yellow Arrow signals on Randall Road, Fabyan Parkway, and Orchard Road.
