SG board authorizes Bliss project

Sugar Grove—The Sugar Grove Village Board on Tuesday voted unanimously to authorize an intergovernmental agreement with Kane County for a Bliss Road improvement project.

Kane County officials plan to widen Bliss Road at both the KeDeKa and Hankes road intersections, to install turn lanes designed to ease the amount of regional traffic on Bliss.

“We want to make it safer for people who (are) turning at those intersections,” Village President Sean Michels said.

After the county awards the construction contracts, it will provide the village at least five days notice before starting the project work. The county will pay all costs for the project, except the estimated $19,202 for a necessary water main relocation, which will be a village expense under the intergovernmental agreement.

The road improvement project is slated to be finished sometime next year.
