Patch Poll: What Would Make Kirk Road Safer?
A crash over the weekend that killed a Batavia man sparks some feedback from readers about Kirk Road and safety.
At least a dozen vehicles, including four semis, were involved in a large, chain-reaction crash on I-55 Tuesday morning, according to The Chicago Tribune.
Over the weekend, a Batavia man was killed in a crash on Kirk Road near Wind Energy Pass.
Although the crash did not happen at an intersection, the incident raised concerns about making turns off of Kirk Road.
A Patch reporter on Tuesday observed that most of the roughly 30 left turns from northbound Kirk Road in Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles have a left-turn lane.
Batavia had the least amount of left-turn lanes for its streets off of Kirk, in locations such as Kirk and Giese and Kirk and Chillem.
Commuters think about it every day, but we want to know from you what will make traveling the streets safer.
