DuPage County announces $21.3 million in 2017 highway construction projects

The DuPage County Division of Transportation has announced the agency's upcoming highway construction projects for 2017, according to a news release from the county.

The program will focus on improving infrastructure where existing pavement and amenities are aging, including pavement patching and resurfacing, striping, bridge repairs and traffic signal maintenance.

In total, the program will cost an estimated $21.3 million.

"Safety is the number one priority for DuPage County," said Donald Puchalski, county board member and transportation committee chairman. "The projects along County Farm Road and 75th Street at Book Road are intended to reduce accidents and better ensure the safety of motorists and our citizens."

The following roadways will be resurfaces:

• Bloomingdale Road from North Avenue to Geneva Road

• St. Charles Road from Bloomingdale Road to Geneva Road

• Geneva Road/St. Charles Road from Western Avenue to Riford Road

• Glen Ellyn Road from Fullerton Avenue to Army Trail Road

• Ferry Road from River Road to Illinois 59

• Raymond Drive from Ferry Road to Ogden Avenue

• Greenbrook Boulevard from County Farm Road to Lake Street

• 63rd Street from Interstate 355 to Williams Street

Portions of County Farm Road and 75th Street will also be improved to enhance safety, including a northbound right turn lane and modernized signals as County Farm and Schick Road.
