From the Cook County Government web site:

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle unveiled the list of the County’s 2017 road construction projects, offering motorists a roadmap for the upcoming season.

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways plan will improve roads in nearly 20 suburban municipalities at a cost of $23.2 million dollars.

“Cook County has revitalized its transportation department and is a regional leader in transportation policy under the guidance of Connecting Cook County, the County’s first long range transportation plan in more than 70 years,” Preckwinkle said. “One of the policy priorities detailed in the plan dictates that the County should maintain and modernize what already exists, and this is exactly what we’re doing with the 2017 roadwork plan.” Read more.
