Spring Paving Projects Starting Soon on County Highways

Post Date:04/09/2020 2:30 PM

WOODSTOCK, Ill. – Work will soon begin to mill and resurface two stretches of county highway.

Resurfacing will start April 20 with a completion date of June 5, weather permitting. The roads being milled and resurfaced are Chapel Hill Road from Bay Road to the Chapel Hill Road bridge, and Bull Valley Road from Crystal Lake Road to the Union Pacific-Northwest railroad tracks.

The pavement preservation 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, placing shoulder stone, and painting new pavement markings.

Peter Baker & Son Co., of Lake Bluff, was awarded the $759,000 bid in October 2019.

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 maintain our county highways.
