MYP releasesCHICAGO – Building upon the smart infrastructure investments supported by State Senator Robert Peters, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of $101 million in road and bridge improvement projects across the 13th District.

“Thanks to Rebuild Illinois, we will see some much-needed improvements to our roads and bridges,” said Peters (D-Chicago). “These investments allow us to put in the work to preserve the historic value of our roads and increase safety for residents.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Peters represents will see four infrastructure projects totaling $101 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.

“I’m always happy to support infrastructure projects because they generate employment opportunities for skilled laborers,” said Peters, who chairs the Senate Labor Committee. “These projects bring good-paying jobs to the community and boost our local economy while increasing road safety for residents.”
