trafficBURBANK – Building upon the smart infrastructure investments supported by State Senator Mike Porfirio, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of over $59 million in road and bridge improvement projects throughout the 11th Senate District.

“Our infrastructure is the backbone of our economy,” said Porfirio (D-Lyons Township). “With this investment, we can address long-overdue repairs and upgrades and provide a solid foundation of roads and walkways for future generations to use.” 

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Porfirio represents will see 19 infrastructure projects totaling more than $59 million next year.

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.

“The Rebuild Illinois program emphasizes the importance of continuous investment in our state’s infrastructure and economy,” said Porfirio. “In addition to improving the safety and reliability of our roads and bridges, this funding creates jobs and encourages economic growth in our communities.”
