The $71 million Western Bypass construction project is meant to relieve traffic congestion with a new four-lane two-mile stretch of roadway that will bypass downtown Algonquin. The new bypass is expected to open in summer 2014.
Starting the week of Sept. 10, motorists should expect to see delays along Algonquin Road when the busy thoroughfare will be reduced to one lane just west of Route 31 to Meyer Drive, according to the news release.
Lane closures are expected on Main Street starting in spring 2013, according to a village of Algonquin news release.
