PEORIA – Following the infrastructure investments backed by State Senator Dave Koehler, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of over $193 million in road and bridge improvement projects across McLean and Peoria counties.

“The Rebuild Illinois initiative is transforming our state’s transportation system,” said Koehler (D-Peoria). “This funding is a crucial step toward enhancing our roads and bridges, which will positively impact residents and businesses alike.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Koehler represents will see 24 infrastructure projects totaling more than $193 million next year.

These projects are part of IDOT’s Multi-Year Plan, a $40 billion investment in construction projects for the next six fiscal years. The project invests in all modes of transportation: roads and bridges, aviation, transit, freight and passenger rail, waterways, as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

“These projects will have a ripple effect on our economy. It will generate employment, support local businesses, and enhance the overall quality of life in McLean and Peoria counties,” said Koehler.
