Thursday’s late night flooding of the Fox River near Cary has resulted in Friday’s continued closure of Rawson Bridge Road in unincorporated McHenry County near the village.
Most of Rawson Bridge Road is in the Cary Fire Protection District, while the Wauconda Fire Protection District covers a small portion.
The road passes over the Fox River.
“(The river) just went over its banks there, it’s not very far off the road,” said Brent Innes, a firefighter with the Wauconda Fire Protection District.
Because the river was expected to crest later on Friday, Innes is predicting that the two-lane bridge will remain closed until further notice.
Innes advises motorists to use Route 176 and Roberts Road as alternative routes.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
