The annual Kane County Pavement Marking Program work started the week of June 24, 2019 and is currently on going weather permitting. The work shall include installation of urethane and paint pavement makings onto 233 miles of County highways as indicated on the attached maps. The County’s typical process is to apply paint pavement markings annually on the majority of the County’s rural highways and the more durable urethane pavement marking to the high volume County highways. This pavement marking project will improve the visibility of the lane markings for the motoring public. The work is anticipated to be completed by the end of October, weather dependent.
Temporary daily lane closures will be required Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM to safely accomplish this work. Lane closures are scheduled to start in the north end of the county, working their way south until all necessary lane lines have been restriped, weather dependent. The north to south progression may change as weather impacts may dictate alternate striping sequences. Temporary flagger control of intersections will be required along the entire route in order to safely accomplish the required work. Please watch for workers, equipment on the roadway and shoulders, anticipate increased travel times and exercise caution while traveling in freshly painted areas.
Questions or concerns may be directed to Matt Schumacher at (630) 762-2744.
