05292019CM0668The Pritzker administration released an economic development plan for Illinois this week. Staples of the plan include the $45 billion Rebuild Illinois construction program, record investments in education, increased research and development (R&D) grants for manufacturing and technology industries, and tax incentives to further workforce development.

The plan released by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity details how the administration plans to spur economic growth in an equitable fashion. Investments will be made to grow regional industries throughout the state and will prioritize removing employment barriers that systematically impact women and people of color.

“These strategic investments in workforce development will provide our state with the skilled employees and entrepreneurs to bring us economic stability,” Murphy said. “Middle class families across Illinois will be in an environment where they can thrive.”

The plan lists specific steps the administration intends to take to provide sustainable growth to regional industries in every corner of Illinois. You can read the full plan here.

Road work signDES PLAINES – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) announced that the Illinois Department of Transportation’s five-year Highway Improvement Program includes a major project on Touhy Avenue between Illinois Route 72 and U.S. Route 14.

“Touhy Avenue is one of the busiest roads in our area and is in an awful state of disrepair,” Murphy said. “This investment will save drivers long-term on vehicle maintenance and will create good-paying construction jobs.”

The Highway Improvement Program includes just over $3 million for repairs and improvements on the 5.45 mile strip of road. The program outlines 60 projects in the Senate District Murphy represents, investing over $234 million in nearly 85 miles of road by 2025.

In total, IDOT’s statewide program will invest $23.5 billion in improving and expanding roads and bridges throughout Illinois, more than double the size of the previous year’s Multi-Year Plan. Projects outlined in the plan will cover 4,212 miles of roadway and 9.2 million square feet of bridge deck statewide between 2020 and 2025.
