Construction Ahead, Prepare to Stop

Road Construction in McHenryWhen it comes to exposure and spreading the word about new homes and communities, there is no better way to observe than a community model home. With the recent road construction taking place on Lincoln Road, our model homes may appear to be off-limits. While there is a lot of exciting construction taking place right in our driveways, we’re happy to announce that we’re still open and accessible!

The construction project begins on Pearl Street at IL 31 and continues east across Fox River on Lincoln Road ending near Chapel Hill Road. This project includes an amazing asset to our communities by presenting a new bike path that will connect McHenry Middle School to the Fox River. Other aspects of the construction include bridge repairs to Pearl Street over the Fox River, installation of sanitary sewer stubs, improvements/upgrades to the sidewalk crossings and handicap ramps at the intersections.

Traffic impacts due to this construction are minimal; however, the work does take place during the week through the work hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. When repairs are being made to Pearl Street Bridge, roads will be closed and have to detour to River Road, Riverside Drive and IL 120. The easiest access our model home is to travel on Chapel Hill Road to Lincoln Road and then bypass the Road Closed sign until you get to Reagan Boulevard where our model homes are on the Corner of Reagan and Bush.

Homebuyers are attracted to our new homes in McHenry because of the quiet, rolling landscape and convenience to popular attractions. While the noise may be a little more than normal for the next 6 weeks, the result will be phenomenal for our Liberty Trails residents! Adding to the master-planned community will be a bike route that leads straight to downtown McHenry.

Don’t let the construction stop you; come by our new model home at 2703 Bush Terrace in McHenry! To learn more about our communities and home plans, visit www.gerstadbuilders.com.
