Bliss Road over Blackberry Creek
Starting the week of January 30, 2017, tree removal work will begin on Bliss Road from Capitol
Drive to approximately 350 feet northeast of the entrance of the Bliss Roads Forest Preserve near
Sugar Grove Township, Kane County. During the work, there may be temporary single lane
closures with flaggers directing traffic. Construction work hours will be from 7:00 am till 5:00 pm
Monday thru Saturday. This work is anticipated to take approximately four weeks to
complete, weather permitting.
The work is being done in advance of the bridge replacement that will occur in Spring 2017.
The above-mentioned road will remain open during removal, but will be reduced to one lane of
travel using temporary daily lane closures. Motorist need to be prepared to reduce their speed,
exercise caution, and be extra alert. Motorist must watch for and obey flaggers and other traffic
control devices within the work zone. Motorists should expect delays while traveling through the
work areas. Motorists may want to add additional time to their commutes and consider the use of
alternate routes while this work is being completed.
A reminder – it is illegal for drivers to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway
construction work zone.
