Plainfield Mayor Michael Collins oversaw a ribbon cutting ceremony that officially reopened the newly redone, and wider 127th Street in the Village.
Improvements to the road included pavement reconstruction on 127th Street to provide a 34’ wide edge-to-edge roadway with two travel lanes and a striped median (dedicated left turn lane at intersections). The existing culvert within the project limits was replaced with a new bridge structure and combination curb and gutter were installed on 127th Street along with an enclosed storm sewer system. New street lights and ADA pedestrian safety improvements were completed. A shared use bikepath was also installed on the south side of 127th Street which now connects to the existing path system with the Northwest Park. Funding assistance for the project was provided through a $2 million dollar federal grant administered through the Will County Governmental League and the Illinois Department of Transportation. The total cost of this project was $2.8M.
