Lanes to close on Miller and River roads

McHENRY – Lanes closures are planned for Charles J. Miller and River roads Monday and Tuesday.

An alert sent out by the engineering firm overseeing the project warns drivers to expect significant delays on both roads and to use alternative routes if possible.

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.
