The Kane County Division of Transportation has retained the professional engineering services of Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. to complete a Phase I Engineering Study for Intersection Improvements at Randall Road and Big Timber Road within the City of Elgin and unincorporated Kane County. The primary objective of this improvement is to identify and analyze operational, capacity and safety concerns of the intersection and develop a preferred alternative to address any feasible needs.
The Phase I study will include a crash analysis of the intersection, analysis of existing and projected traffic demands, environmental studies (including a wetland delineation and a noise analysis study), and the development of a preferred concept for future implementation.
The cross section for this stretch of Randall Road will be widened from the existing 2-lanes in each direction, to 3-lanes in each direction. The existing northbound left turn lane will be striped to include dual left turn lanes. The footprint of the northbound left receiving lanes of Big Timber (west leg) will be improved by extending the through lane movements west before tapering down to one lane in each direction and the commecial driveway will be relocated west of the intersection. An eastbound free flow right turn lane will also be implemented on the west leg. Additionally, improvements will be included to improve the skew angle of the intersection to allow for greater sight lines with turning movements. All of these elements are expected to improve the capacity and safety of the intersection.
Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations are also being included as part of the intersection improvements. A 5-foot sidewalk is proposed in the northeast quadrant of the intersection to provide a connection to the two adjacent 5-foot sidewalk sections.
This improvement will require land acquisition; however, no residential or commercial displacements are anticipated.
The Phase I study will continue into 2021 and will be submitted for consideration to qualifying federal funding opportunities for further project implementation.
