River Road traffic shift due to construction

Work is part of Miller Rd. project

McHENRY – Traffic on River Road will be shifted again as construction progresses on the Charles J. Miller Road project.

Southbound traffic north and south of the Miller Road intersection is expected to be shifted from the existing pavement to the newly constructed roadway Tuesday, according to a project alert.

The first phase of this project is expected to wrap up in mid-October.

It includes widening the two-lane road to four lanes from near the entrance to the South Wastewater Treatment Plant to River Road and installing a new two-lane bridge over the Fox River to supplement the existing bridge.

The widening project is expected to cost $12 million, according to the project’s website.

A start date for the second phase has not been set and depends on the acquisition of property.
