McHENRY – The end to the construction that has tied up Charles J. Miller and River roads is about a month away.

The project is about 80 percent done and is expected to be completed on time, by the Oct. 15 estimated completion date, said Todd Destree, the construction operations manager with engineering firm HR Green.

“We’re getting close,” he said.

Crews will be working in the center median of Miller Road to landscape and finish the installation of curbs and gutters.

All that’s left is the traffic signal, the final layer of asphalt and the installation of a weather information system on the west side of the bridge.

A construction alert sent out Friday reminded drivers to be prepared for traffic delays as trucks enter and leave the construction area.
