Huntley Opens I-90/Ill 47 Interchange

                   At 2 p.m. Friday the full, complete electronic toll interchange between the I-90 Jane Addams Illinois Tollway and Illinois Route 47 at the southern edge of the Village of Huntley formally opened, as the construction equipment pulled away from the cloverleaf and the orange barrels disappeared from view. At a ceremony officially opening the new $61 million interchange paid for in a cooperative effort by the Village of Huntley, the Illinois Tollway Authority, IDOT, McHenry County and Kane County, Huntley Village President Charles Sass thanked all the state, county and local officials involved in completing the project for their efforts, pointing out that the new interchange has “set the stage for attracting more development, creating jobs and expanding the local tax base for decades to come.”

                    The Village has zoned over 300 acres of land within the interchange area for industrial and commercial development, with streets and underground utilities already in place to support new businesses bringing construction jobs and permanent employment to Huntley. Businesses interested in developing new facilities with I-90 frontage and easy access to area highways are encouraged to work with Huntley village officials to arrange industrial revenue bond financing for their new construction within the village.
