Burlington Road at Bolcum Road Reconstruction Construction Engineering
Located near Illinois Route 64, the Bolcum Road at Burlington Road Intersection in the Village of Campton Hills, IL, is used by more than 17,000 commercial and private vehicles daily. With a single stop sign on one leg, the original layout of this “T” intersection created backups on Bolcum Road and made left turn movements difficult for motorists turning left onto Burlington Road. To help enhance safety and improve the flow of traffic at the intersection, STV provided construction inspection services for the Kane County Department of Transportation for the replacement of the current three-legged intersection with a modern roundabout.
The project faced a number of challenges, as construction took place within a small foot print with a tight, five-month deadline, and required innovative traffic control measures. Portions of existing pavement were used, rather than a total reconstruction of the intersection which required careful traffic staging and precise layouts. The project also integrated a new drainage system, sidewalks, pavement markings and signs, and lighting. The center circle was landscaped per plan and included a colored concrete mountable perimeter apron which accommodates the turning radius of larger vehicles and adds to the overall aesthetics.
