SYCAMORE – A months-long road work project along Plank Road between Lindgren Road and East County Line Road is slated to begin this week.

Safety improvements including a 4-foot hot-mix asphalt shoulder widening and installation of rumble strips will be added to Plank Road between this week and Oct. 18, according to a DeKalb County news release.

The $1.7 million project also will include an overlay of the entire roadway, among other work. Flagmen will provide temporary traffic control while one lane is closed at a time.

Loves Park based William Charles Construction Co. was awarded the $1,758,430 project.

Another large-scale June road project will add more lanes to Peace Road at Route 64. One side of the road will be closed at a time, causing delays in traffic.

Construction for the $2.1 million project will run from the end of June until late October.

For information, call the DeKalb County Highway Department at 815-756-9513.
