AURORA – Building upon the Illinois Department of Transportations’ Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, State Senator Linda Holmes is pleased to announce infrastructure investments of $162,156,000 in road, bridge and rail crossing improvement projects in the 42nd District. The 31 projects in the plan for Fiscal Years 2024 – 2029 include repaving, adding lanes, rebuilding bridges, replacing culverts, improving railroad crossings and upgrading safety features.

“Thanks to the ongoing Rebuild Illinois program, these investments will improve roads and bridges across the state and provide improved access to jobs and opportunities in our area,” said Holmes (D-Aurora). “Our counties are seeing considerable growth; transportation infrastructure expands our capacity for those commuting for work, running errands, or providing goods and services. This work also improves accessibility and safety, and creates a number of good-paying jobs.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Holmes represents will see infrastructure projects totaling more than $162 million over the next six years. In FY 24, eight projects totaling more than $36 million in work are planned, including:

  • Improvements and bridge work in Naperville
  • Reconstruction of East State Street in Geneva
  • Resurfacing and additional lanes in Aurora

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 invest in all modes of transportation: roads and bridges, aviation, transit, freight and passenger rail, waterways, as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

“Investing in our communities is essential to help our economy continue to move forward,” Holmes said. “As our area continues to see significant growth, these investments will help serve our needs and equip our economy for the future.”
