New idea needed for Randall

To the Editor:

A continuous flow intersection at Algonquin and Randall roads also would be a continuous flow for McHenry County residents’ pocketbooks.

At a total cost of $135 million, this road project is way too expensive and burdensome. And most of this money isn’t even for the Randall-Algonquin intersection. Some is for frontage roads. Are frontage roads really going to be the solution to traffic flow on Randall Road?

According to Crain’s Chicago, 2010-2013 saw a population decline in the six collar counties surrounding Chicago. Maybe we need to go back to the drawing board and re-evaluate this expansion plan to reflect more realistic growth demands.

The County Board needs to come up with a financially palatable solution and save the taxpayers from having to pay this huge bill for the next 20 years.
