Grove Road Realignment Receives ACEC-Illinois Engineering Excellence Award of Merit
HR Green has received a 2015 American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois Engineering Excellence Award of Merit for its work on the Grove Road realignment.
“We are proud to have worked with the Kendall County Highway Department on this project,” said Tony Simmons, Senior Project Manager. “The new roadway realignment presents a much more safe and efficient roadway for the motorists who use it on a daily basis.”
HR Green worked with the Kendall County Highway Department on the project that consisted of the realignment of approximately one mile of Grove Road, north of Illinois Route 126. The north and south legs of Grove Road previously intersected Route 126 approximately one-third mile apart. The realignment of the north leg resulted in one, 4-way intersection where previously only the south leg intersected Route 126.
The new alignment also eliminated the existing, substandard reverse curves near Roberts Drive, approximately one-half mile north of Route 126. Associated improvements included the widening of Route 126 and the south approach of Grove Road to accommodate added auxiliary turn lanes at the new, combined intersection.
