Improvements planned for dangerous Rt 52 intersection

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2011

La Salle County officials want the state to help speed along the process of fixing a dangerous intersection.

The county board has sent Springfield a resolution asking for “quick take authority” to acquire right-of-way needed to improve the Route 52 and County Highway 2 intersection west of Serena.  County Engineer Larry Kinzer says the intersection has had a number of accidents resulting in deaths and or serious injuries.  He wants to make it more of a 90-degree intersection.

The county has received a federal grant to do improvements.
