PROPOSED CHANGES TO CHARLESTOWNE MALL

by The Rullo Team

Proposed changes to Charlestown Mall in St. Charles include tearing down the former Sears store as part of an overall restructuring of the mall.  Reconfiguring the entrances to the mall and the movie theater, relocating the food court, and exterior renovations to the mall itself to make it more eye-catching to passers-by are also included on the list of proposed changes. Several outlots would be developed into commercial locations for banks, restaurants and other retail uses along Route 64.

The contract buyers of Charlestowne Mall are requesting to amend the shopping center’s planned-unit development (PUD) ordinance to allow for the proposed improvements.  A public hearing was held at the Tuesday Oct.8, 2013 Plan Commission meeting and was continued into its next meeting on Oct. 22. After the public hearing is complete, the St. Charles Plan Commission will send their recommendation to the St. Charles City Council. For more information visit the St. Charles Patch website.

Traffic Delays Today on Peck Road

by The Rullo Team

Are you curious about the new type of road surface you’ve seen on Peck Road, LaFox Road and others in the last month? ‘Chip seal’ is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layer(s) of hot liquid asphalt cement (or hot tar) with one or more layer(s) of fine gravel.

Traffic delays can be expected this afternoon as the next step in the surfacing process is completed on Peck Road, between Route 64 and Keslinger Road in St. Charles Township. The "chip seal" had been in place, which seals off cracks. Today, the crews are putting down what is called the micro-surface. Micro-surface is about a quarter-inch thick, and "goes down black and goes down like asphalt."

According to Paul Holcomb, the chief of design for the Kane County Division of Transportation, "The goal here is it extends the life of the existing surface, so we won't have to come back and put any more expensive asphalt surface for a while," he said, explaining that a while means five or six years.

He said after the micro-surface work, all that will need to be done is pavement striping. At the minimum, traffic would be limited to one lane, or it could be closed at times. For more information, visit the Kane County Chronicle website.
