CL residents call median a bad idea
CRYSTAL LAKE – At least 10 residents pleaded with city officials Tuesday to evaluate alternatives to a proposed 200-foot-long median in front of their homes and businesses.
With repairs on East Crystal Lake Avenue ongoing since April, the city wants to install the median to prevent drivers from making a left turn onto East Street from East Crystal Lake Avenue and to stop cars from queuing up or stopping on the railroad tracks.
After more than two hours of discussion at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the council approved temporary barriers to stop drivers from making the left turn while city staff reaches out to the Illinois Department of Transportation to see whether other options are feasible.
