WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board this month adopted a transportation program for 2018 through 2022.
On Nov. 14, the board adopted the McHenry County Transportation Program, a state-required planning tool the county uses to develop its annual budget. The plan contains a list of major improvements anticipated within five years and an estimate of revenues that will become available during that period.
The program aims to implement goals set in the county’s 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan, which include relieving congestion, improving safety, preserving the environment and linking transportation to land use.
The transportation program includes $212.6 million in project expenditures, including:
• $41.6 million for the Randall Road Program,
• $30.6 million for an interchange at Route 23 and Interstate 90,
• $30.6 million for rehabilitating and replacing bridges,
• $27.9 million for roadway pavement preservation and resurfacing,
• $15.3 million for roadway safety improvements,
• $10.4 million for the MCRide dial-a-ride transit service and
• $10 million for the Nondedicated Subdivision Road Construction Program.
