Romeoville Receives Funding
for Sidewalk Improvements
Romeoville announced earlier this month that they were one of 50 projects chosen statewide to receive funding through the Illinois Safe Routes to School Program. The Village of Romeoville has been awarded $88,000 to fund the construction of a sidewalk connection between South and North Budler Roads along Taylor Road.
“This is an important connection that would provide a safer route for children who live south of Taylor to walk to Creekside and Lakewood Falls elementary schools,” Mayor Noak said.
The Safe Routes to School program encourages children to walk and bike to school by providing a safer and more appealing transportation alternative. Completion of the project is anticipated prior to the 2015 school year.
