The City of McHenry is a diverse community offering a variety of housing choices, a wide range of employment options, and unparalleled access to recreational activities. Located at the heart of the Fox River just 50 miles northwest of Chicago, McHenry is located in one of the fastest growing counties in the state yet retains its small town charm.
McHenry is conveniently located at the intersection of State Routes 120 and 31 in northeast Illinois, minutes away from Interstates 90, 94 and 43. Our community is served by METRA, Chicagoland Commuter Rail Service, and PACE suburban bus service.
By working together in a combined effort of good will and understanding, we can make the City of McHenry one of the finest places in the United States to live, work and play.
CITY NEWS and ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Route 120/Crystal Lake Road Railroad Crossing. The City was notified that Union Pacific intends to repair the railroad track crossing on Route 120 near Crystal Lake Road. This crossing is rough and is in need of repair. In an effort to minimize the impact of this project on the existing Route 120 roadwork, Union Pacific will reduce traffic to single lanes instead of closing the entire crossing. The project will take place from July 28-30. The Department of Public Works is coordinating with Union Pacific to ensure that appropriate signage is erected notifying drivers of the route. Union Pacific will also issue a press release.
