Updated 7/18/2013 1:14 PM

The state will provide more than $50.2 million for a two-phase construction project along Route 59 in Naperville, the governor's office announced Thursday.

Plans call for reconstructing Route 59 between Diehl and Ferry roads as well as replacing a bridge. The work will be done by Herlihy Mid-Continent Company of Romeoville at a cost of nearly $25.9 million.


The project also will include the reconstruction of Route 59 from North Aurora to Diehl roads, along with plans to modernize traffic signals and install noise abatement and retaining walls. Those upgrades are expected to cost about $24.4 million and be done by Martam Construction, Inc., of Elgin.

Both portions of the work will be administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
