A proposed plan to widen IL 31 from Route 120 in McHenry to Route 176 in Crystal Lake has some residents–and politicians–perturbed.
Referring to the planned Route 31 Project, “This is a draconian plan,” said William Busse, who served as McHenry mayor from 1985 to 1993. “It’s way over-engineered. Local businesses and property owners need to say ‘Let’s wait a second and work out a solution to [accommodate] higher volume of traffic without knocking buildings down.’
The Route 31 project length spans seven miles, from Route 176 in Crystal Lake to Route 120 in downtown McHenry. The objectives of the project is to solve “congestion (existing and future), safety for multimodal users, accessibility for all users, and existing design deficiencies,” according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. In addition, it aims to minimize overall environmental impacts.
Sever Storey, in the midst of a trip to McHenry to discuss the western portion of the Charles Miller Road Project, met with some concerned landowners who would be affect by the Route 31 Project. Officials suggest a preferred alternative route will be chosen by 2014.
