Algonquin Bypass to Begin, Plus Route 14 Crystal Lake to Woodstock and Route 47 and Tollway Makeovers Set
$92 million is earmarked for the Algonquin Bypass. When first proposed it would have cost half that much.
$63 million will be spent to make Route 14 four lanes all the way from Crystal Lake to Woodstock, where it will link up with the bypass constructed by Governor William Stratton while he was in office fifty-some years ago.
$16.6 million will go toward reconstructing the interchange at Route 47 and I-90 in Huntley, presumably to allow traffic to get on the Interstate going west to Rockford and to allow eastbound traffic to get off at Huntley.
This is part of a $12.8 billion highway program unveiled by Governor Pat Quinn yesterday.
