SPRINGFIELD – Building upon the smart infrastructure investments supported by Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of $219.6 million in road and bridge improvement projects. Sen. Pacione-Zayas looks forward to the investment’s impact on roadways in her community.

“Our infrastructure is essential to keeping our community connected and ensuring people can commute to work safely,” said Pacione-Zayas (D-Chicago). “We need to continue to improve our state’s aging infrastructure by making our roadways more accessible for commuters and maintain high standards of safety.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Pacione-Zayas represents will see 26 infrastructure projects totaling more than $219.6 million over the next six years.

Some of the vital projects coming to the area include:

  • Bridge restoration and pavement maintenance on I-94, I-90, and the Kennedy Expressway
  • Rehabilitation of expressway lane on Kennedy Expressway

These projects are part of IDOT’s multi-year plan, a $34.6 billion investment in construction projects for 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 investment will be transformative for our communities, and will keep our economy moving forward,” Pacione-Zayas said.  “I am eager to see the results of this investment in the coming months and years.”
