Traffic delays on Charles Miller Road could start next week

McHENRY – High water levels for the Fox River pushed back work on Charles J. Miller Road that was expected to take place this week.

Work could start Monday, April 29, but if water levels remain high, work could be delayed another week, according to a release from the engineering firm, H.R. Green.

When the work begins, traffic delays, to occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., could last up to 10 days.

The construction is part of a two-phase project that will widen the two-lane Charles Miller Road to four lanes and construct a second two-lane bridge over the Fox River to create two lanes of traffic in each direction.

Officials expect this phase of the two-part project to be completed by Oct. 15. Work began in November.

For information and to sign up for updates on the the project, visit charlesmillerroad.com. Emails will be sent to those that sign up alerting them where and when construction activities and potential traffic delays will occur.
