Rep. Wheeler Announces $48.1 Million for U.S. Route 14 Improvement Project in District 64

Representative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) today announced that $48.1 million in State funding has been earmarked for a major U.S. Route 14 improvement project in the McHenry County portion of IL House District 64.

Two separate projects managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will improve U.S. Route 14 between Woodstock and Crystal Lake. Reconstruction and widening will be done on U.S. 14 from West Lake Shore Drive to Lucas Road, and 2.3 miles of roadway reconstruction, including adding lanes, widening and resurfacing and drainage improvements, will be done from Lucas Road to Crystal Lake Road in Crystal Lake.

“These are vital transportation projects that will improve safety and travel times on one of McHenry County’s busiest roads,” Wheeler said. “Once completed, the reconstructions, widenings and additional lanes will enhance our transportation infrastructure in a way that will hopefully attract new businesses and jobs to that area.”
