CRYSTAL LAKE – Improvements are coming to North Main Street, and residents can learn about them at an upcoming open house.

The city of Crystal Lake is hosting an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 100 W. Woodstock St., regarding planned improvements to North Main Street between Route 176 and Woodstock Street.

The most noticeable parts of the project include a new traffic signal at the intersection of Route 176 and Main Street, widening of Route 176 to include an eastbound right-turn lane, and resurfacing along North Main Street from Woodstock Street to Route 176, according to a news release from the city.

Additionally, a water main along North Main Street and Route 176 will be replaced, and a new curb extension is coming to the intersection of Prairie Street and North Main Street. 

Project exhibits will be on display for review at the informal open house.

City staff and representatives from Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick – the engineering consultant for the first phase of the project – will be on hand to receive feedback from attendees and answer questions.

Written comments can be submitted at the meeting or emailed to mainstreetproject@hlreng.com by Nov. 10.

The project is in the preliminary engineering phase, with construction anticipated for summer 2020.

The city secured $1.5 million in federal Surface Transportation Program grant funds for construction.
