Algonquin, LITH Algonquin Road Repairs To Be Intermittent
Dittrich estimated it will take "two to four weeks" to repair storm sewer grates along Algonquin Road from Route 31 west to Lakewood Road. During July's extreme heat, "The curb popped up on us," said Dittrich, pushing some of the storm sewer grates proud of the surface. That's not a huge problem now but, come Winter, it will be. Imagine snagging the blade of a five-ton snowplow on an iron grate at 30 or 40 miles an hour. "It's not something you want to be doing," said Dittrich.
