In 2018, your Village officials plan to resurface Barnard Mill Road from the intersection of Ringwood Road east to Route 31. Ringwood Road will also be paved from the intersection of Route 120 to just east of South Solon Road. 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. So 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 Road that is within each jurisdictions boundary. Bids for this project were opened in January. Curran Contracting Company 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.
