Summer Paving Projects Underway on County Highways

Post Date:07/10/2019 2:50 PM

WOODSTOCK, Ill. – Work has begun to mill and resurface three stretches of county highway.

The projects are part of the McHenry County Division of Transportation’s annual paving program to maintain the quality of its more than 550 lane miles by milling existing surfaces, laying new asphalt and shoulder stone and emplacing new pavement markings.

Work started Monday with the milling of Deep Cut/Nelson Road, between U.S Route 14 and Charles and Alden roads, in Hartland Township. Paving will follow after milling is completed. Later this month, work crews will repave Deerpass Road northeast of Marengo from River Road to Route 176 to go along with the newly rebuilt bridge over the Kishwaukee River, and will repave Greenwood Road between Route 173 and the intersection of Charles Road and Illinois Route 120.

Curran Contracting Company, of Crystal Lake, was awarded the $3.14 million bid. Work should be completed by mid-August, weather permitting.

Motorists should be prepared for lane closures and delays while work is in progress. Please watch out for workers in work zones, obey work-zone speed limits, and never text and drive. We appreciate your patience as we strive to keep our county highways the best they can be.
