Change Made to Intersection Where Boy on Bike Hit

Cars traveling in all directions will now be stopped at Chicago and Middaugh when a pedestrian is crossing the street.

Traffic control at a Clarendon Hills intersection that was the site of a car-on-bike collision in September has been adjusted.

Buttons at the four corners of Chicago and Middaugh avenues have been installed that, when pushed by pedestrians, stop traffic moving in all directions, according to a release from the Village of Clarendon Hills.

Even with the new buttons installed, more safety options will be explored for Chicago and Middaugh.

"The Village of Clarendon Hills and District 181 will jointly apply for a Safe Routes to School grant, which could significantly reduce the cost of any additional enhancements in this area," village manager Randy Recklaus said.

A 12-year-old boy on a bike was hit by car while crossing Chicago on Middaugh the morning of Sept. 25. The 17-year-old driver was turning left and did not see the Clarendon Hills Middle School student because his vision was impaired by sunlight.
