10 of 30 Invest in Cook projects awarded in the south suburbs

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways (DoTH) selected 30 projects as part of Cook County’s inaugural Invest in Cook grant program. Ten are located in the south suburbs.

Cook County will fund $7.2 million for the transportation-related projects, which span 42 municipalities, including the City of Chicago. The selected projects include transit improvements, cycling and pedestrian enhancements, traditional roadway repair and freight enhancements. Cook County has committed a total of $8.5 million for Invest in Cook. Additional projects will be selected and announced at a later date.

The County’s investment of $7.2 million leverages an additional $7.6 million in federal, state and local funds. The commitment of County transportation resources will enable $14.8 million in project activity across all phases to get underway in the coming year. Read more about the program here.
