murphy paving 062921DES PLAINES – Residents of the Northwest Suburbs will see significant improvements to local roads as part of a $66 million infrastructure investment across northern Cook County, State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) announced.

“These improvements are a long time coming,” Murphy said. “In just a few short months, residents and visitors to the Northwest Suburbs will be able to enjoy safer, more pleasant travel across the region.”

Three resurfacing projects began this spring and are currently underway in the 28th District:

  • Arlington Heights Road from Palatine Road to Higgins Road (Illinois 72), to be completed in late fall;
  • Busse Road (Illinois 83) from Golf Road (Illinois 58) to Higgins Road, to be completed this summer; and
  • Palatine Road from Algonquin Road (Illinois 62) to east of Roselle Road, to be completed this fall.

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced seven current and upcoming projects in northern Cook County, representing a total investment of more than $66 million for the region, made possible by the historic, bipartisan Rebuild Illinois capital program.

“These projects represent a significant investment in northern Cook County and are a big step forward in our work to improve safety, mobility and create economic opportunity for years to come,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman. “We’re asking drivers to be patient, slow down and pay extra attention driving in and around any work zone.”
