Kane County 2011 Resurfacing Program begins

KANE COUNTY—Roadway work necessary to implement Kane County’s 2011 Resurfacing Program is scheduled to begin the week of May 2 on the following roads: Corron Road, from south of Bowes Road to Bowes Road; Bowes Road, from west of Corron Road to east of Corron Road; Fabyan Parkway, from 1275 feet west of Kingsland Drive to 100 feet east of Kingland Drive; and Main Street, from 500 feet west of Route 47 to Harter Road.

The roadwork is expected to be completed by May 31, weather permitting.

The resurfacing process typically includes:
• Grinding and removal of 1.5 inches of the top-wearing surfacing of the pavement
• Placement of a fresh oil application over the grinded pavement
• Placement of 2.25 inches of an asphalt layer over the oil application to provide a new, smooth riding surface.

Work on Fabyan Parkway also includes curb and gutter removal and replacement.

A map showing county highways included on the 2011 Resurfacing Program is available at www.co.kane.il.us/DOT/constProjects.aspx. Click on “2011 Construction Projects” and then “2011 Resurfacing Map.”

Daily lane closures from Monday through Saturday will be required to accomplish this work. Please watch out for flaggers and anticipate increased travel times while traveling through these construction areas. The public is advised to use alternate routes, especially after placement of the fresh oil application. Signs will be posted to inform the public in advance of the oil application.
