New parking lot would enable users to park and share rides.
McHenry County plans to build a carpool lot at the reconfigured Route 31 and Virginia Road intersection in Lake in the Hills, the Northwest Herald reports. The park-and-ride lot, with 110-space parking spaces, would allow people to meet and park for carpooling, the Herald reports. It would be built on the southwestern corner of the intersection. A study by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning showed a need for such a lot, and the McHenry County Division of Transportation received a $1 million grant to design and construct it, the article stated. The Lake in the Hills Village Board is expected to vote on the project at its meeting Thursday, Jan. 10. If approved, construction will start this summer, the Herald reports.
