Shorewood Coffee and Conversation will be from 9 to 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 14 at the Shorewood-Troy Library (650 Deerwood Drive, Shorewood, IL).

Bertino-Tarrant hopes area residents will take advantage of the casual environment to ask questions and share legislative ideas for the 2018 legislative session.

“I’m in the process of preparing legislative initiatives and ideas for the next legislative session,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “Our Shorewood Coffee and Conversation is a good way for area residents to share their ideas and voice their opinions on important issues in our communities and state.  These personal conversations help me better represent our district.”

In addition, Village Trustee, Barbara “Cookie” Kirkland, will join Senator Bertino-Tarrant to address local questions and concerns.

jbt-weber-i55The Weber Road interchange running through Will and DuPage counties is known by residents and commuters as one of the most heavily congested areas in all of Chicagoland.  

A $69.2 million Interstate 55/Weber Road improvement project in Will County is now moving forward, with the first construction projects to be awarded soon. The state of Illinois and Will County are sharing the cost of the project.

The long-awaited construction project had stalled due to a law passed seven years ago, which dedicated the revenue from the sale of surplus land to fund the local government portion of the road project. That land has still not sold so the project was unable to move forward.

But the project can now get underway thanks to a new law, sponsored by Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood), which removes the final obstacles and allows it to move forward independent of the sale of the surplus land.

“Will County is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation,” Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant said. “We need roadways that can keep up with population growth and handle increased traffic so that residents and commuters are able to travel safely. This project will help us accomplish that.”
