Deerpath Rd and Main St Intersection Improvements

Current Status (May 2019)

Underground utility work is currently underway with daily lane closures. Within the next week, traffic control will change to a lane-shift to the south side of Main Street. 


Status (April 2019)

The project has been awarded by IDOT to R.W. Dunteman with full construction expected to begin April 15, 2019. V3 Engineering will be the full-time onsite resident engineer. Currently, utility companies can be seen onsite relocating their services prior to the start of full construction. 

Deerpath & Main Letter


Status (December 2018)


The project has been awarded by IDOT to R.W. Dunteman with full construction expected to begin in March/April 2019. Currently, utility companies can be seen onsite relocating their services prior to the start of construction this spring. Please check back for updates as we near full construction.

Status (June 2018)


Phase I approval was granted in November of 2016. Phase II engineering design kicked off in June of 2017 and is expected to be completed in mid 2018 along with land acquisition. Currently land acquisition is underway.  Phase III construction is scheduled to be let by IDOT on November 9, 2018 with construction commencing in early 2019.  This timeline is not final and may be altered as the City and County progress through the different phases of engineering and land acquisition.  Please check back for updates.

Status (April 2018)


Phase I approval was granted in November of 2016. Phase II engineering design kicked off in June of 2017 and is expected to be completed in mid 2018 along with land acquisition. Phase III construction is anticipated to be by IDOT in late November 2018 with construction commencing in early 2019.  This timeline is not final and may be altered as the City and County progress through the different phases of engineering and land acquisition.  Please check back for updates.  

Project Purpose


The signalized improvements will also include removal of the skewed alignment of Main Street and Deerpath Road at the intersection as well as new dedicated turn lanes.  The traffic signal at the intersection of Deerpath Road and Main Street will interconnect with the signal at Randall Road and Main Street. Additionally pedestrian and cycling paths will be added that are consistent with Kane County Bike Plan as well as sidewalks on the remainder of frontages. 


Project Background
The City of Batavia and Kane County are working jointly to improve the traffic movements at the skewed intersection that Deerpath Road intersects Main Street.  The initial part of the Phase I study evaluated the intersection for a roundabout or a typical signalized layout.  After reviewing the alternatives the City and County decided to move forward with a signalized intersection.  The traffic signal will make turning movements safer as they are restricted by red lights and will also add additional turn lanes for shorter stacking and safer turning movements.

Construction Impacts
Staging plans have been prepared and construction will be staged in 3 phases for completion of this project. Since Main Street is a main arterial, traffic will remain open in all directions with temporary closures (flaggers) only as needed.  More information will be added as construction approaches.  

Project Funding
The project will be implemented as a joint project between City of Batavia and Kane County.  Both jurisdictions will share the local portion 50%.  Phase I & II will utilize 100% local funds with 50% coming from City of Batavia (Developer Funds) and 50% Kane County. The City has secured Surface Transportation Program (STP) Grant for Phase III construction engineering and construction. The STP grant is funded 75% with 25% being a local match; the local match will be split equally between the City and the County.
