Barnard Mill Road Project

Resurfacing of Barnard Mill Road from the intersection of Ringwood Rd east to Rte 31. Ringwood Rd will also be paved from the intersection of Rte 120 to just east of South Solon Rd. I’m happy to report that we were successful in obtaining a Federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) grant for this project. This is a 80/20 grant. The Village of Ringwood, Johnsburg, City of McHenry and McHenry Township will be responsible for 20% of the cost of this project. The 20% will be divided according to the percentage of Ringwood Rd that is within each jurisdictions boundary. Curran Contracting Co. was the low bidder in the amount of $1,610,135.29. Construction on this project is expected to begin the week of April 16th.
