Illinois’ first statewide construction plan in over a decade was signed by Gov. Pritzker today and will set up a framework and funding formula to rebuild Illinois’ roads, bridges and public facilities in every corner of the state.
The 27th District will receive funds for everything from street repairs and storm sewer system maintenance to and renovations to non-profit facilities.
“This plan will provide good-paying jobs for people across the state, and investment in communities that have been in need of it for a long time,” said Gillespie. “Not only will it get people to work, but having well-maintained roads and highways will provide savings for taxpayers and motorists in the future.”
Some of the projects coming to the 27th District include maintenance and renovations for non-profits like Northwest Compass, Clearbrook and Little City and flood mitigation projects in several municipalities.
