IL Route 72 at IL Route 31 Intersection Improvements

West Dundee, Illinois

  • V3 completed an intersection improvement study to evaluate the safety and capacity of the existing conditions at the intersection.

  • Phase I services included a project report and location drainage study for the widening and resurfacing IL Route 72 to accommodate a westbound right turn lane, widening and resurfacing IL Route 31 to accommodate dual left turn lanes, traffic signal modernization, drainage system upgrades, intersection lighting and corner radii improvements to accommodate the new turning configurations.

  • A primary project challenge was designing and adding both left and right turn lanes to the intersection while minimizing impacts to the adjacent properties.

  • Drainage improvements were included to resolve existing flooding problems.

  • The location of the project’s east leg is within a registered historic district and there are existing special waste issues at the intersection.

  • Phase II services included the preparation of construction documents for roadway, drainage and lighting improvements, coordination with IDOT Bureau of Programming, right-of-way studies and plat and legal document preparation.

  • Funded by the Highway Safety Program.
