hunter 072023 2CHICAGO — Building on the smart infrastructure investments supported by State Senator Mattie Hunter, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of more than $71.5 million in road and bridge improvement projects.

“These projects will upgrade and repair our infrastructure while bringing jobs to the 3rd District,” said Hunter (D-Chicago). “By revitalizing our roads and bridges, we are strengthening our local economy and making it safer for everyone to travel.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, Hunter’s district will see six infrastructure projects totaling $71,553,000 over the next six years.

These projects are part of IDOT’s Multi-Year Plan, a $40 billion investment in construction projects for the next six fiscal years. The project invests in all modes of transportation: roads and bridges, aviation, transit, freight and passenger rail, waterways, as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

"Chicago welcomes thousands of daily travelers," added Hunter. "Whether you're commuting to work, running errands or exploring the diverse offerings of our great city, improved infrastructure ensures you do so safely.”
