Aurora, IL: State funding for grade-separation announced by Governor Quinn

22 Jul

Governor Pat Quinn has announced that the State of Illinois will provide more than USD25.5 million for a grade separation project in Aurora at the intersection of highway US34 and the Canadian National (CN) right-of-way with construction managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The level crossing averages 31,200 road vehicles and 42 trains per day. The benefits of the project are the elimination of delays to road traffic and the risk of train-road traffic collisions.

The project is part of Governor Quinn’s USD$31 billion “Illinois Jobs Now!” initiative, the largest construction programme in the State’s history.
