Chairman Scott Christiansen and the Winnebago County Highway Department came together Monday to celebrate the grand opening of a completed road project at Sandy Hallow and Mulford Roads.
The project included the complete reconstruction of the intersection. Winnebago County engineers say the purpose was to improve the flow of traffic.
Rockford Blacktop Construction Company was the contractor for the project. Additional through lanes were constructed on Mulford Road to create a four-lane intersection. There were also turning lanes and traffic signals added to the intersection.
Construction lasted almost four months.
