As I was driving down Dole Avenue toward McHenry West High School for my son’s swimming practice, I saw a new sign had been erected across from the First United Methodist Church of Crystal Lake.
That’s was after having a hard time seeing if any traffic was coming east on Crystal Lake Avenue. I had to pull slowly into the intersection to make sure it was safe to go across the street.
When we went to church Sunday, I saw it was a new stop sign.
As I drove back from Toys R Us, I got the two shots below.
First, there’s a new warning sign, complete with flags.
I’ve been taking that route from Downtown Crystal Lake since high school when I picked up my father from the train station. Dole Avenue had not yet been built from the Methodist Church to Woodstock Street in 1958 along the old railroad tracks.
