The Kane County Department of Transportation begins major work on Monday, April 20 at the intersection at Bliss and Merrill roads. Bliss Road from Route 47 to Main Street Road will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday for four months. The Sugar Grove Police Department will be as active as possible in strictly enforcing local traffic only.
The detour rerouting of traffic away from the area means increased traffic on neighboring streets and subdivisions (and their neighbors). With the nicer weather and school out soon for the summer, children will be out playing, riding their bikes and crossing streets to get to their friends, the park, or chasing a lost ball into streets. Village President Sean Michels asks that residents and others take special precautions in driving through these neighborhoods.
The improvements to the intersection will improve motorists’ visibility and will ultimately mean safer driving for all in the area, Michels said.
