Fleming Road residents prevail
County Board OKs $692K project that doesn’t widen scenic road
WOODSTOCK – Residents along Fleming Road officially won their almost 3-year struggle to save their scenic drive from destruction by a much-needed rebuild.
The McHenry County Board on Tuesday evening voted, 22-0, to approve a plan to rebuild the crumbling road starting late spring in its current footprint, saving its rolling hills, centuries-old oaks and daffodil beds from the bulldozer.
The plan, hashed out last year, uses a technique called cold in-place recycling, which grinds up the old road and part of the bed and uses the ground-up material to lay down the new one.
