Lake County is slated to receive nearly $5 million in infrastructure funding as part of a new federal bill. In December, President Biden signed into law the omnibus bill that included federal funding for infrastructure projects in Lake County. The funding was awarded for the following projects:
$4 Million: Cedar Lake Road Realignment
Realignment of Cedar Lake Road to the west with a new at-grade crossing with the railroad in downtown Round Lake. Improvements to Metra’s Milwaukee District North Round Lake station site, a new bike path, sidewalks and flooding mitigation improvements. Learn more
$750,000: Lake Bluff Downtown Flood Mitigation Project
Installation of a new upsized storm sewer and realigning an existing storm sewer to mitigate flooding that significantly impacts public safety, economic development, and local transportation in Lake Bluff.
Earlier this year, US Representative Brad Schneider (IL-10) submitted these projects for Congress to consider as part of a federal initiative called Community Projects Funding (CPF).
“Thank you to Congressman Schneider for advocating for this much-needed funding for these critical projects. We are excited to see these funds quickly put to good use on infrastructure that will benefit Lake County residents and businesses for years to come.”
— Lake County Board Chair Sandy Hart
“We are grateful for the outstanding partnerships we have at both the State and Federal levels .Infrastructure projects are costly, and collaboration is crucial to obtain the funding needed to make big, regionally significant improvements. We look forward to working with our great partners to get to the finish line on these projects.”
— John Wasik, Lake County Legislative Committee Chair
The Lake County Board regularly works with local legislators on opportunities through its Legislative Committee.
