Now that Secura Insurance is planning to build a new headquarters in Fox Crossing, the village and Winnebago County are looking to improve Highway CB.
Village administrator Jeff Sturgill says they're going to build a roundabout at the entrance to the property, between East Shady Lane and Highway BB.
He says the county's highway commission is also planning to expand the Highway CB to four lanes, from East Shady Lane to Highway BB, by 2023. Sturgill says the county board would still have to approve funding for that project.
For the roundabout, Sturgill says Secura agreed to pay the first $1 million toward the work. He says the money that's generated through the village's new TIF district will cover the rest.
