WHY WIDEN ROUTE 47?

Woodstock and communities along Route
47 in McHenry County are growing across residential, commercial and tourism sectors.

McHenry County is the most populace county in the United States without direct access to the Interstate Highway System.

With the full improvement of the I-90 interchange in Kane County, Route 47 north is experiencing increased traffic, congestion and accidents.

The intersection of Routes 47 and 176 in Lakewood is traversed by an estimated 40,000 vehicles daily and is identified by IDOT among the top five percent of the most dangerous intersections in Illinois.

Despite declining numbers in some areas of Illinois, Woodstock and communities along Route 47 north of I-90 continue to experience growth in population, business and tourism.

Widening Route 47 and re-aligning the intersection of Route 47 at Route 176 is crucial to enhancing safety, easing traffic congestion and supporting residential and business growth.
