RoadConstructionELGIN – Building upon the smart infrastructure investments supported by State Senator Cristina Castro, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of $64.3 million in road and bridge improvement projects across the 22nd District.

“The Rebuild Illinois plan is making transformative upgrades to our infrastructure that will set us up for long-term success,” said Castro (D-Elgin). “Not only do these projects enhance travel for residents, they also boost the economy and create good-paying construction jobs across the state.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Castro represents will see 20 infrastructure projects totaling $64,317,000 over the next six years.

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, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

“From Schaumburg to Carpentersville, these investments will upgrade transportation in every corner of the 22nd District,” Castro said. “Economic development is driven by the quality and availability of local jobs, infrastructure and transportation. This plan fuels all three – setting our economy up for the future.”
