Construction plans underway for Route 30 and Dugan Road

SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Village Board earlier this year announced that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is conducting a study on the road improvement plans necessary for Route 30 and Dugan Road in Sugar Grove.

IDOT is specifically studying the Route 30 corridor between the eastern part of Route 47 and the western part of Dugan Road.

The Village Board on Tuesday evening acknowledged that it has been meeting with IDOT representatives to come up with a construction plan for Route 30 and Dugan Road.

“When we last met with the representatives for IDOT, they were impressed with the progress we have made with this project,” Village President Sean Michels said.

The representatives and engineers working on this study, as well as the Village Board, are also concerning themselves with what improvements will benefit people who use those roadways during the LPGA’s International Crown event at Rich Harvest Farms in summer 2016. Plans include the paving of road shoulders on Route 30 to ensure that drivers are safer when traveling, as well as to ensure more convenience in the event that a vehicle must pull over on the side of the road.

Sugar Grove residents or anyone interested in the study can visit for more information on the areas considered for resurface, repair and lane additions. The Illinois Department of Transportation anticipates that construction will begin in 2015.
