Nearly $40 million in Rebuild Illinois grants slated for 25th District, Villa announces

WEST CHICAGO – State Senator Karina Villa announced nearly $40 million in funding for road and bridge improvement projects across the 25th District.

“Having safe, well-maintained infrastructure increases the quality of life for our residents,” said Villa (D-West Chicago). “Not only will this investment make our community more accessible for residents as well as visitors, but it will help boost our local economy and create numerous job opportunities across the 25th District.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, local communities will see 19 infrastructure projects totaling $39,758,000 over the next six years.

Some of the most vital projects coming to the area include:

  • $400,000 for improvements on IL-38 in Geneva and St. Charles
  • $1,500,000 for the repair and preservation of IL-56 in Aurora
  • $9,846,000 for the reconstruction of East State Street in Geneva
  • $1,009,000 for improvements on Technology Boulevard in West Chicago

The multi-year plan has allocated $34.6 billion in construction projects across Illinois over the next six fiscal years.

The $34.6 billion will go to highway reconstruction and preservation, bridge improvements, strategic expansion, system support such as engineering and land acquisition, and safety and system modernizations. Over six years, the funding will be dispersed to improve more than 2,500 miles of roads and nearly 10 million square feet of bridges.

“This blueprint for investing in Illinois transportation is perhaps the most consequential in the history of IDOT due to the increased federal commitment and Gov. Pritzker’s ongoing leadership through Rebuild Illinois,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman. “We look forward to working with our partners and stakeholders, delivering these important projects in communities up and down our state.”
