Kaneville—The Kaneville Village Board on April 21 voted to approve cost sharing with Kane County on village speed enforcement signs.

“The county will purchase two signs to put up,” Trustee Rick Peck said. “They will also purchase a spare for maintenance.

With this agreement, the village will pay the county for one sign, which will cost the villlage about $4,000.

One of the signs will be placed on Harter Road and the other on Main Street, where they will display the speed limit, as well as motorists’ current speed. The signs will also capture data, which will allow the county and village to view different traffic trends throughout the day.

The signs will come with a two-year warranty, and will be installed in the coming months.
