The Illinois Department of Transportation (Wed) announced that nearly $106 million has been awarded through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program to expand travel options and enhance quality of life in communities throughout the state. This year’s program is the largest ever due to the passage of Gov. JB Pritzker’s Rebuild Illinois and for the first time dedicates resources to communities that exhibit the greatest need.
Included is a Kankakee project -- $1.3 MILLION FOR SOUTH SCHUYLER BIKE & PEDESTRIAN ROAD IMPROVEMENTS.
“Our Rebuild Illinois capital plan is improving the day-to-day lives of our residents, which is why I’m proud to announce the largest investment in quality-of-life projects in Illinois history,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “From safer pedestrian paths to new bike lanes and trail systems to beautification projects, the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program will deliver real value to nearly 100 communities across the state, with a special focus on equity.”
