The project became part of the City's Bikeway Implementation Plan in 2016. The City then applied for a grant and received federal Surface Transportation Program funding that covers 75% of construction and engineering costs. The $200,000 Illinois State Representative Janet Yang Rohr requested will reduce the City’s share of engineering and construction costs for this necessary safety improvement.
"We have forsome time recognized the need for several safety and access improvements in
this very active part of our community. I welcome the opportunity to make theseimprovements that will serve our citizens well," said Warrenville Mayor
“From installingaccessibility ramps to making sure everyone in our community has access to the
Route 59 area, to improving drainage and important weather infrastructure, andmore, this state partnership will go far in allowing an important project to further
connect our community,” Rep. Yang Rohr said. “These vitalimprovements will help people get where they're going, manage stormwater, and
make our community more bikeable and walkable.”
