The Illinois Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, is conducting a study of US 30 from east of Dauberman Road to IL 47 in the villages and townships of Sugar Grove and Big Rock in Kane County. The study is being performed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires the examination of potential impacts to the natural and human environment when considering transportation improvements.
US 30 EAST OF DAUBERMAN ROAD TO IL47
The Illinois Department of Transportation initiated a study in 2013 of US 30 from Dugan Road to Illinois 47. That study identified immediate safety, operational and drainage needs. As a result, the Department completed interim improvements of US 30 from Dugan Road to Municipal Drive in 2016.
The interim improvements included resurfacing and reconstruction of the US 30 and Dugan Road intersection to provide additional exclusive turning lanes and traffic signal modernization. Shoulders were also provided along the north and south sides of US 30 from Dugan Road to west of Municipal Drive.
In 2016, the Kane County Division of Transportation initiated a Phase I study for the extension of Dauberman Road south of US 30 to Granart Road. Construction is targeted for 2022 pending right-of-way acquisition. The proposed scope of work includes a grade separation of Dauberman Road over both the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad and over US 30, with a jug-handle type interchange in the northeast quadrant.
The Illinois Department of Transportation project study limits were extended west to meet the limits of the Kane County Dauberman Road project limits.
