“The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that a patching and resurfacing of Richmond Road (Illinois 31), from south of McCullom Lake Road in McHenry to Johnsburg Road in Johnsburg, will require intermittent daytime lane closures beginning, weather permitting, Monday, April 25.
The $1.8 million project, which also includes constructing new ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps and replacing deteriorated curbs, is expected to be completed in early August.
In May, both sides of Blake Road at Richmond Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction for approximately two weeks to accommodate pavement patching. Access to residences and businesses within the work zone will be maintained throughout construction.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
Over the next six years, IDOT is planning to improve more than 3,535 miles of highway and nine million square feet of bridge deck as part of the Rebuild Illinois capital program, which is investing $33.2 billion into all modes of transportation. Accomplishments through Year Two included approximately $5.2 billion of improvements statewide on 3,020 miles of highway, 270 bridges and 428 additional safety improvements.”
