Prairie Grove Village Board approves Barreville Ridge Estates resurfacing

PRAIRIE GROVE – One Prairie Grove subdivision and a section of Half Mile Trail will be resurfaced this fall, a village official said.

The Prairie Grove Village Board approved the engineering for the patching and resurfacing of Barreville Ridge Estates at its meeting Tuesday evening.

The plan is to be put out to bid in July and start work in the late summer or early fall, Village Administrator Jeannine Smith said.

The project will be paid for using recently generated money from $1.59 million in bonds, which will go toward road and bridge projects over the next several years, she said. The Village Board intends on using current revenue to pay back the bonds and abating the bond portion on property owners' taxes.

The Village Board also signed off the phase one and two engineering of improvements to Barreville Road from Route 176 to Ames Road.

Village officials hope to obtain federal funds through the McHenry County Council of Mayors, but that application process requires the engineering to be done, Smith said.

The construction of a pedestrian crosswalk at Bay Road also received the go-ahead.

Nunda Township plans on constructing the crosswalk to help pedestrians who are parking at the township office and crossing Bay Road to the Prairie Trail, Smith said.

Because the road is the village's, the township needing authorization to do the project, which should not cost the village anything in terms of construction or maintenance, she said.
