Motorists reminded to slow down on Miller Road

McHENRY – McHenry County officials continue to remind motorists about the new speed limit posted for the construction zone at Charles Miller and River roads.

The new speed limit of 35 mph took effect Nov. 15. The minimum fine for violation of the new speed limit is $375.

The construction zone’s speed limit signs are posted along Miller Road, between Green Street and River Road, and along River Road, between Emerald Court and Black Partridge Avenue.

The speed zone will remain in effect until fall 2013, when the ongoing road project is scheduled to be finish.

The Miller Road Improvement Project will widen and reconstruct Miller Road, from Green Street to River Road, and River Road, from Emerald Court to Black Partridge Avenue. The project also includes construction of a new two-lane bridge over the Fox River.
