In Sunday’s Northwest Herald, Executive Editor Dan McCaleb announces he has changed his mind on the County Transportation Department’s desire to build a Continuous Flow Intersection at Algonquin and Randall Roads.
Strangely, the NWH has published nothing I have seen on the detailed critique prepared by the Citizens Group for Public Accountability. If you would like to read it, you can find it in the article below:
The McHenry County Board replied to the critique, which you can read in the article linked below:
Another article that might be of interest speaks of the population drop in the area:
McCaleb talks of his use of the intersection, which provides some frustration, but suggests those frustrations “don’t necessarily justify spending so much taxpayer money [$15 million] on an experimental road design that many local government officials and businesses oppose.”
“In the end, I don’t think saving a few seconds of driving time is worth the risk to businesses or the added expense.”
He does admit that he might change his mind again.
