Paving on Zion-Rockford Route Will Be Started This Summer.
Assurance that Route 173, Zion to Rockford, will be under construction this summer, were received from the office of Gov. Len Small.
The governor stated that the work of surveying the route between Caledonia and Harvard had been completed and that the work yet to be done lay in Lake county.
The road, in all probability, will swing west from a point at or near Zion and parallel the Illinois-Wisconsin line so as to serve Russell and Antioch, McHenry and Boone counties. This highway will then connect with the concrete strip between Beloit and Rockford.
Work of securing right-of-ways through Lake county is not under way as yet. Decision has not been reached, it is understood, as to the exact routing. A meeting was held several weeks ago at Zion at which time the residents of the district made their suggestions to the state highway department. The governor at that time stated that everything possible would be done to get the paving underway this summer -- Waukegan Sun
