Shabbona Drive from Sauk Trail to Indianwood Blvd and South Orchard Drive from Sauk Trail to Blackhawk Drive are both designated as federal aid (FAU) routes thus making them eligible for federal funding. Shabbona Drive is currently in the beginning stages of the Phase 2 process whereas South Orchard Drive is not; but is still in the plan for future federal funding years.
In 2019, Rebuild Illinois was signed into law to help stimulate the economy and improve Illinois infrastructure thus making funds available to local governments. According to Rebuild Illinois guidelines, these funds are to be used on bondable construction projects and funds are to be used by federal fiscal year 2025.
Therefore, Public Works will use the Village’s allotments of Rebuild Illinois funding to make roadways improvements to the non-FAU portions of Shabbona Dr (Indianwood Blvd to South Orchard Dr) and of South Orchard Dr (Blackhawk Dr to Monee Rd),
The proposed improvement is to reconstruct the road, along with removing and replacing curb and gutter, driveway replacement, ADA sidewalk improvements, structure adjustment, pavement markings, traffic control, restoration, and any other necessary items.
