Traffic signals at three intersections along Ogden Avenue in Naperville are scheduled to stop functioning temporarily next week while some of their hardware is upgraded.
Intersections where Ogden meets North Aurora Road and Raymond Drive, where it intersects with River Road, and where it hits Naper Boulevard/Naperville Road are included in the project that aims to upgrade traffic signals along state routes throughout the area.
Naperville spokeswoman Allison Albrecht said drivers should expect delays on one morning next week at each intersection while Illinois Department of Transportation workers replace the ground-level cabinets that hold signal equipment and upgrade features such as countdown timers, pedestrian walk signal buttons and battery backup systems.
Work is expected to take place between 9 a.m. and noon, beginning Monday on the signals at Ogden and North Aurora Road/Raymond Drive. Work at Ogden and River Road is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, and upgrades at Naper Boulevard/Naperville Road are expected to take place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday.
Stop signs will be in place while the traffic signals are not functioning. The city is encouraging drivers to use other roads if possible to avoid delays during work periods.
These signals are among 26 in Naperville set to receive hardware upgrades. Albrecht said the city is contributing an estimated $28,083 for improvements at 22 signals in DuPage County and four in Will County that are along Ogden or Route 59.
