DuPage County Announces 2022 Transportation Capital Program
The DuPage County Division of Transportation announced its 2022 Capital Program on Tuesday, focusing on maintaining and improving the County’s infrastructure.
The 2022 Highway Capital Program proposes nearly $53.5 million in federal and County funds to maintain existing infrastructure, while also implementing projects to improve safety and relieve congestion. Fifty-three lane miles of DuPage County highway are due to be patched and resurfaced under the plan. These projects will improve rideability and extend the service life of existing pavement.
“Our goal for the annual transportation construction program is to maintain or improve the safety and accessibility of our roads in a comprehensive and cost-effective manner. Our larger projects aim to reduce congestion and improve overall mobility for residents, workers, and visitors in DuPage County,” said Transportation Committee Chairman Don Puchalski.
The larger projects in 2022 include:
- Intersection improvements and resurfacing on 75th Street from Millbrook Drive to Greene Road
- Intersection improvements and resurfacing at 87th Street and Woodward Avenue
- Expanding the County’s Central Signal System to include an additional 100 traffic signals
In addition to these larger projects, roadways to be resurfaced include:
- Army Trail Road from 84th Court to Schmale Road
- Powis Road from Hawthorne Lane to Illinois Route 64
- Geneva Road from County Farm Road to Western Avenue
- Hobson Road from Washington Street to the East Branch DuPage River
- 55th Street from Holmes Avenue to County Line Road
- Yackley Avenue from Warrenville Road to north of Maple Avenue
