The steel bridge borrowed from Commonwealth Edison is gone from Dennis Road. Now vehicles can drive across the bridge without fear of ruining their undercarrage.
The subdivision south of Algonquin Road a bit east of Pingree Road now has a bridge that vehicles can traverse.
Driving over the Commonwealth Edison-constructed bridge or parking on Dennis Road before the bridge were the choices subdivision residents during construction.
This is the bridge where successive storms washed out the gravel between three culverts.
There was a good flow in the creek flowing over the Lake in the Hills Dam the morning after another deluge.
Now both the upstream and downstream sides of the culverts are protected by concrete.
Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser reported on the repair of the bridge at Tuesday’s Township Board meeting.
