Another lane change ahead on River Road

McHENRY – Another traffic shift will happen on River Road as the Charles J. Miller Road project crosses the halfway point.

Lanes are expected to be reconfigured and traffic shifted on Tuesday, according to an alert sent out by the construction operations manager. Drivers are advised to give themselves extra time to get through the work zone.

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

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

For information and to sign up for updates on 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.
