Cook County has made several infrastructure and transit investments in District 14.
In communities across our District, service lines, roads and drainage have been updated, including:
Wheeling is receiving $2M from the Illinois EPA for lead service line replacement project which will update 105 lead service lines in the community. You can read more about the project here.
Arlington Heights & Palatine are receiving $16M for the resurfacing and other improvements for Central Road, Schaumburg Road, Euclid Avenue, and Nerge Road.
Communities across Cook County will receive $5M for emergency pavement repair, repairing drainage structures, and mitigating sinkholes. This will protect the public investment in our highways by ensuring a more safe, efficient, and stable highway system.
Finally, Cook County is investing $1.2M in performance studies including traffic counts, traffic projects, speed analyses, intersection traffic control warrants analyses, crash analyses, permit reviews, intersection design studies, and plans preparation. By better-understanding the travel needs of residents today, we can invest in transit and infrastructure for our future.
In addition to these investments, Cook County has made other recent transit investments in District 14. You can read about them here.
