More than $9.7 million in capital investment funds have been dedicated to the construction of a new Indian Trail Bridge in Aurora.

Gov. Pat Quinn announced the funding as part of the state’s capital construction program.

“Our investment will make travel across the Fox River safer and more efficient,” Quinn said.

The project, which is expected to cost $9.7 million, will include new pavement, curbs and gutters, new storm sewers and new lighting.

A Coal City company, D Construction Inc. will be replacing the bridge. The work will be overseen by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

“The much-needed Indian Trail Road Bridge enhancements will improve the daily commute of countless Aurora motorists,” said state Sen. Linda Holmes (D-Aurora).

According to state Rep. Linda Chapa La Via (D-Aurora), the project is vital to the region.

“Investments like this provide safe roads for our community and help to create good paying jobs,” she said.
