“Our roadways have gone unimproved and unattended for too long, and with these funds we can expect to see some major improvements to roadways across the district,” said Stadelman (D-Rockford). “The investments coming to the greater Rockford community are exactly what our infrastructure needs.”

The latest part of IDOT’s Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois will bring $598,528,000 to the district Stadelman represents, totaling 82 different projects over the next six years.

Some of the most vital projects in the 34th District include:

  • Bridge reconstruction and improvements to the US 20 Bypass at I-39
  • Reconstruction and additions along I-39 from Harrison Avenue to Mill Road
  • Reconstruction and roadway repair along U.S. Business 20 from Avon Street to East State Street

The 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 plan continues to help rebuild our roadways to keep up with our fast-paced economy,” Stadelman said. “It is important to remember how vital our transportation network is to ensuring our infrastructure is prepared for the future.”
