The Illinois Tollway has called for the first public meeting of the Environmental Impact Study (EIS). Join us as we dialogue with our neighbors in Lake, Cook, and McHenry Counties how alternative transportation strategies, and not an elevated Route 53 Tollway over Hawthorn Woods, would relieve congestion in our area.
Construction is scheduled to begin next week on Darlington Drive. The road remains closed at the choker culvert nearest to Old McHenry Road due to the failure of the corrugated metal culverts that carry the water from Forest Lake Drain under Darlington Road. The contractor will likely begin construction of the replacement of the culverts and the new roadway the week of March 19th. Construction is expected to be completed in May of 2018. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during this reconstruction project.
