Safety improvements planned for Illinois Route 2 at Roscoe Road
Online Staff Report
The Illinois Department of Transportation is working on safety improvements at the Illinois Route 2/Roscoe Road intersection.
The work being completed includes the installation of improved signing, pavement marking, as well as vegetation removal to provide for improved sight distance.
The safety improvements are a result of a Road Safety Assessment that was recently completed by the department.
The department has also received initial approval to secure federal safety funding for an interim improvement to the intersection at Roscoe Road. This future project will be designed such that the infrastructure work will be incorporated into the final section of the four-lane reconstruction of Illinois Route 2.
Winnebago County Board Chairman Scott Christiansen said, “On behalf of the residents of Winnebago County, I want to thank the State of Illinois and Eric Therkildsen, IDOT District 2, for continuing to pursue improvements that upgrade the safe operation of vehicular traffic at this intersection.”
