Default Elgin / Route 20 Construction

yo NW burb dwellers...

As you know, Lake street has been undergoing some road work.
resurfacing + the Rt 59 interchange ( my sister is working on that project ).

Some others may have noticed that Randall Rd and Rt 72 in Elgin / Dundee has been undergoing some resurfacing.

Well, My sister dropped the bomb today.... The randall rd / Rt 20 interchange will be getting reworked next year. My sister suggested learning the back roads

So heads up to the guys who frequent the area.... sounds like it's going to be a mess.

I've been taking 90 lately in the morning to avoid the resurfacing on 20.
2-3 extra miles each way but so much faster.

Iíd say to take Irving Park but every rock jock dump truck driver, slow ass bus driver and the damn cement trucks already drag ass on that it. If you do take Irving make sure you go 10-15 under the speed limit so you donít slam into the Indian women that donít know what a speed limit looks like.

They just finished Randall down to 20 in the last month.

I hope when they re-do that intersection at Randall, someone puts a fucking sign up in the westbound 20 exit on to south Randall "DO NOT FUCKING STOP..." It is a runway type merge, keep going.

They're also in the process of resurfacing Shales Parkway and 20. I don't know what's taking so long to put the final layer down. The first one has been down a week or so now.

I don't get why it's taking so damn long to get the 59/20 intersection done...

I slip down to Munger on Army Trail to avoid the backups.

Should have never entered this thread..

I wonder what 20/Randall will cost... Pretty sure I heard 300-350 MILLION was spent on 20/Mclean that took a couple years from start to finish..

But that is nice. I use it every day.

The only thing I think that's stupid with it, is if you're turning right from McLean on to it, there is an arrow there that sometimes is red based on the traffic flow. It really isn't necessary to be red some of the time when there is no traffic passing through...

I wondered what that was even based off of... There must be some radar on the road gauging traffic.. I think a lot of people still turn right on red, maybe they'll add a cam

I think it's based on timing of when traffic from the other direction, is given the arrow to turn left, cross the other lane and make their way up that ramp. But it doesn't seem timed very well.

I just go if it's clear, but more often than not, you get behind those that are afraid of their own car and they do stop and wait.
