PROJECT NAME: US30BY (Lombard) at Fiske
ISSUE: Old signal, span wire on side street & mast arm across highway. Utility poles as signal poles. Signal pole on NE corner visibly leaning.
PURPOSE AND NEED: Risk of leaning pole failing, potentially with impacts to utility poles that are also part of span system. Substandard signal heads may currently be contributing to crashes, which would only be corrected if signal heads are replaced. Will continue to be costly/difficult to maintain.
PROPOSED SOLUTION: Full signal upgrade, ADA improvements, and utility conflict resolution; coordinated with other projects on Lombard.
TOTAL COST: $1,086,166
Note: This project was leveraged with the Lombard Safety Extension State Highway System Leverage project. The Leverage project, two Operations projects (Lombard at Fiske and Lombard at Chautauqua) and one Safety/ARTS projects (Lombard at Peninsular and Greeley) were combined for the purpose of project delivery.
