38th District State Senator Sue Rezin is highlighting several road projects throughout the district selected by the Illinois Department of Transportation. There is about $112.3 million in projects planned in the next fiscal year. Among the projects is the Collins Road to Minkler Road extension that will cost around $15 million.
There are 31 projects that will be addressed in the next fiscal year and more in the next five or six years.
Some other Kendall County projects include improvements on Route 71 , culvert replacement on Route 47, and bridge replacement over Aux Sable Creek.
Rezin says it is encouraging to see the Illinois Department of Transportation invest in long term, cost-effective, improvements that will advance travel for future generations. Rezin says the improvements are needed as many roads and bridges have been neglected for far too long.
