Mayor Enstrom greeted Rep. Waddell in front of the Village Hall with Chief Richard Ptak on hand. The group then preceeded to Route 47 and Main Street for a look at traffic conditions. The Mayor was explaining the situation at 5 school buses, Union Special traffic, school children crossing and numerous other vehicles. When the construction on Route 47 was proposed so was a stop light for the comer of Main St. and Route 47. Now however the Department of Transportation has stated that a light cannot be put in until lat 1979 or eariy 1980, Many resident and public officials of Huntley believe'that the lights are necessary now and that it why Republican Whip Waddell was asked to view this major road and its conditions. Rep. Waddell stated that he felt good about the improvements made on 47. He had been instrumental in getting the road widened and repaved. He also said that the road was getting where it should be. Rep. Waddell told ut that there were two problems at far aa getting the traffic signals now. The flrat it that the Department of Transportation does not have money allotted to put in the lignal until 1979-80. He taid that pottibly if there waa tome leftover from other projects that it could be alloted for the signal. The second problem is correlating the railroad crotting tignt with the traffic tignals. The expenae and work on the railroad tignt it up to the Chicago & Northwettera Railroad. Rep. Waddell taid that he would talk to both the Department of Tranaportation and the C ft N W and see what could be done. He alao aaid that if reaidentt were concemed they thould contact both agendet. Rep. Waddell alto said that the Department of Tranaportation does have tome tontrol over railroad funding and might be able to speed up the work if residents called and wrote and let them know how they felt.
