Road Anti-Icing

When the Public Works Department pretreats village roads with de-icing applications, you will see dark lines down each lane of travel.These lines help prevent snow and/or ice from bonding to the pavement at the beginning of a snow or ice event. The liquid can also reduce salt usage by as much as 30% and help more salt stay on the road when spread.

McRide – Dial a Ride Program

MCRide Dial-a- Ride is a great way to get around McHenry County. Whether you need transportation for work, school, shopping, medical appointments or just to visit a friend, MCRide provides an affordable and flexible way to travel!

As a dial-a-ride program, MCRide service is a coordinated countywide paratransit service, and vehicles do not travel in a fixed route each day. Riders schedule their trips in advance and the vehicle provides curb-to-curb service from the rider’s desired pick-up and drop-off destinations. MCRide is a shared-ride service, so vehicles may make stops for other passengers.
