Fleming Road residents prevail
BULL VALLEY – The Fleming Road Alliance’s arsenal of yellow ribbons and clever signs, along with a healthy measure of dogged determination, may have saved its scenic drive from destruction.
It took 2½ years of fighting with the McHenry County Division of Transportation, but the group of homeowners has tentatively secured a plan that will fix the deteriorated road without widening it or installing improvements they say would destroy the tree-lined drive of rolling hills and flowers.
Cementing the agreement is a construction process just authorized in April by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The process, called cold in-place recycling, will grind out the surface and part of the road bed one lane at a time, using the grounded up old road itself to help lay down the new one.
