Elburn hopes to change road designations

By on February 13, 2014

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board on Monday approved a recommendation to change the classification of certain roads within the village from that of a local road to a major collector.

The designation would make the specified roads eligible for additional funding to maintain them. The recommended roads are Prairie Valley Street from Main Street to Anderson Road, North Street from Main Street to Anderson Road via Dempsey Street, and Blackberry Creek Drive from Hughes Road to Keslinger Road.

Approval by several more levels of government is required, including Kane County and the Illinois Department of Transportation.
