HLR conducts various land surveying activities for Kane County on an as-needed basis. Surveys include services such as preparing Plats of Highways, staking right-of-way, and route surveys. Some of the projects include:
Seavey Road Maintenance Facility
Performed a boundary survey of the 29-acre maintenance facility in Blackberry Township. The boundary survey was required for the installation of a chain-link fence around the perimeter. HLR re-established a section corner and set five corners of the boundary during the survey. The project also included the preparation of a Plat of Survey for recording to show the location of the new fence.
IL 47 at Burlington Road
Performed an existing right-of-way survey and prepared Plats of Highways and legal descriptions for the proposed roundabout at the intersection. Property lines and necessary section corners were located to establish right-of-way from all four quadrants.
Kirk Road at Stadium Street
Performed a route survey of Kirk Road from Foxfield Road to Fox Chase Drive in St. Charles. The route survey was necessary for the widening and resurfacing of Stadium Street. HLR provided cross sections, located right-of-way and easements, and provided the digital terrain model with contours for the County’s use in design.
Burlington Road Spillway Monitoring
As a commitment to the landowner, the County agreed to monitor the concrete spillway at Burlington Road and Corron Road during construction. HLR inspected the spillway and noted the condition prior to construction, then installed monitoring targets at six locations on the spillway. HLR also monitored the targeted locations weekly throughout construction to observe any horizontal or vertical movement in the structure.
Fabyan Parkway at IL 31
Performed an existing right-of-way survey and prepared Plats of Highways and legal descriptions for an exchange of land between the County of Kane and the Kane County Forest Preserve District.
Perform various surveying tasks including supplemental route surveys and right-of-way plats necessary for the acquisition of the Longmeadow corridor. Plats of Highways have been completed for the IL 31 intersection and the IL 62 intersection with Longmeadow.
