General Information

Crystal Creek takes water out of Crystal Lake and passes under roads through culverts. These culverts will be removed and replaced. The Culvert Improvement Project is needed because the culverts are 50-75 years old and beyond their useful life. 

Residents along Riverside Drive West will need to access their homes via Country Club Road and residents along Riverside Drive East will need to access their homes via Broadway Avenue. Direct access to the Crystal Lake Country Club will not be affected.

Message boards will be placed along the roads to be closed notifying the public of the date of the road closure. Follow the City on Facebook or Twitter or sign up to receive email updates on the project.

The culverts are located along Crystal Creek at Broadway Avenue, Country Club Road, Barlina Avenue, McHenry Avenue, and Dartmoor Drive. McHenry Avenue will not be closed at the same time as Barlina Avenue and Dartmoor Drive.
