State Rep. Mike Unes is working with Hollis Township, I-DOT and the Illinois State Police to install a stop light at the intersection of Route 24 and Cameron Lane.
Unes says a car crash at the intersection last month that killed a 21-year-old mother, Kaitlyn Hines, was devastating. He says too many accidents and close-calls have taken place at the intersection to overlook the issue.
Unes’ request prompted further inspection by I-DOT and the state police. Unes says they found crash data for the intersection warrants a stop light according today’s standards.
Assistant I-DOT Secretary Rich Brauer says the agency recognizes the need for the intersection improvement and a design study is underway.
