ST. CHARLES – The Kane County Division of Transportation is urging drivers to consider avoiding Randall Road, between Dean Street and Route 64, for a two-week period starting Monday.

A project to remove the abandoned Union Pacific railroad crossing on Randall will cause land closures during that period, according to a news release.

According to the release, the removal of the abandoned crossing will start at 9 a.m. Monday and continue through Aug. 1.

One lane of Randall Road in each direction is expected to be closed during the period.

“Please use alternate routes when possible,” the release stated. “Expect delays in traffic flow due to the large amount of vehicles using Randall Road daily. There will be lane closure changes during this work.”

For information, call 630-584-1171.
