More Street Closures For Huntley Rt.47 Widening

Work to widen Route 47 in Huntley will spread to cross streets in the coming week.

Monday Coral Street will be closed from Dwyer Street to Route 47 all day and Tuesday or Wednesday parking along the north side of Main Street will be completely closed from Church Street to Route 47.

Meanwhile excavation for and placement of temporary pavement between Mill and Borden streets will probably continue through Friday with traffic down to one. When the temp paving is done traffic will shift over to that side.

Also likely through Friday Main Street from Janice Drive to Church Street will see single lane closures and lane reconfigurations. Public Parking lots will remain open on Main Street at the railroad tracks and the lot next to Old Village Hall on Coral Street.

Work will continues a the box culvert at Kishwaukee Creek extending the current culvert to four-lane width.  The tall spidery orange contraption there is a concrete pump.

Storm sewer work at the south end of the project area will continue to make it's way upstream.

In case anyone missed it, the new Walgreens at Route 47 and Reed Road opened about 10 days ago.  It was in the works long before the money for Route 47 came through but it's another instance in which customers don't have to grind their way from one end of the village to the other for service.

The most up-to-date public info on the Route 47 widening project is here:

If that's not good enough the village has a project hotline at 847-515-5266.
