Two Randall Road Intersections Featured on “Worst Intersection” Story Front Page of Chicago Sun-Times

Two Randall Road Intersections were featured in the Sunday’s Chicago Sun-Times’ front page story on “Worst Chicago Area Intersections.”

The Kane County transportation folks have tried to improve the intersection of Randall and Huntley Roads in Carpentersville by not allowing left turns except with the directional light.

That didn’t keep it from being the worst intersection in the six county Chicago metropolitan area in 2006, however.

That was good enough to make the front page of last Sunday’s Chicago Sun Times.

And, ranking number 8 was where the Rakow Road extension of Randall Road meets McHenry Avenue in Crystal Lake.

It is scheduled for widening to six lanes at that location.

All the other most dangerous intersections were in the suburbs but Chicago’s LaSalle Street at Clark.

The accident seen in the top two pictures is from January 16, 2008.

The “S” curve at the beginning of Rakow Road, where it connects with Randall Road, can be seen at mid-day on a May Saturday this year.
