Route 31 Resurfacing Begins From Elgin to Algonquin
Southbound traffic on Route 31 was backed up Tuesday morning from Main Street/Huntley Road in Elgin almost to Crescent Drive in Algonquin. It was the actual start of a 4.2-mile resurfacing job that was scheduled to begin three weeks ago. The $1.6 million project which will neck 31 down to a single lane with flaggers is expected to take at least two months to complete according to published Illinois Department of Transportation schedules. With the start of the project, all three main north/south routes in southeastern Mchenry/northeastern Kane counties are now involved in major construction at one or more points.
