Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said last week that the county's annual road construction program would focus heavily on restoring pavement damaged by this winter's severe conditions.
The menu of projects will cost an estimated $38 million and cover approximately 55 lane miles. Additional road and bridge repairs will be undertaken with a $16.7 million state grant that was recently announced.
The county will patch and resurface Sanders Road between Techny Road and Lake-Cook Road in Northbrook and Deerfield at an approximate cost of $3.1 million.
Other projects include pavement improvement at the intersection of Hintz Road and Wheeling Road in Wheeling, and patching and road resurfacing on Euclid Avenue in Rolling Meadows and on Naperville Road in Bartlett.
