myp24CHICAGO — A lifelong resident of the 20th District, State Senator Natalie Toro is excited to announce the Illinois Department of Transportation is investing over $57 million in road and bridge improvements in the local community.  

“Our neighborhood’s infrastructure has needed improvements over years of aging and usage,” said Toro (D-Chicago). “These investments will help modernize and repair damaged parts of our roads and bridges, making these modes of travel safer for years to come.”

The district Toro represents will see seven infrastructure projects totaling more than $57 million next year as part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois.

IDOT’s Multi-Year Plan is a $40 billion investment in construction projects over the next six fiscal years. These funds go to improvements across many modes of transportation, including roads and bridges, aviation, transit, freight and passenger rail, waterways, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

“The Kennedy Expressway and Milwaukee Avenue are important connectors for our community on the Northwest Side. Like many of my constituents, I rely on these roadways daily for transit, and am excited for their modernization,” said Toro.
