DEERFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Bob Morgan, D-Deerfield, is announcing that over $138 million in highway infrastructure funds have been earmarked for his 58th District via the Rebuild Illinois Capital Plan. The funds are to be used between now and 2028 for various projects related to state and local highways.
“An economy’s road network is its bloodstream,” Morgan said. “That’s why passing and funding the Rebuild Illinois program was a key priority for me. It’s easy to let roads, bridges and highways get lost in the shuffle of flashier, more attention-grabbing budget items. But infrastructure is the economy’s foundation and it can only work as hard for us as we work on keeping it maintained. That’s what makes this funding so crucial.”
Forty-two separate projects are funded across Morgan’s district with costs ranging from $12,000 up to $22.3 million. Nine projects, with budgets totaling just under $10 million, are slated for 2023, with the remainder being spread over the years 2024-2028.
“Illinoisans both need and deserve a world-class transportation network to support and amplify their characteristic hard work and innovation,” Morgan said. “This funding through Rebuild Illinois is just one part of my commitment to my goal of serving the people who’ve entrusted me to make Springfield work for them.”
