ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Rockford aldermen are mapping out how money will be spent in the Forest City for the next four years with a capital improvement plan which was passed at Monday’s City Council meeting.
Spanning from 2020 to 2024, the $51 million program will be made up of motor fuel and sales tax funds, water capital improvement funds, as well as state and federal money.
The plan includes $5 million for streets and alleys, $1.5 million for sidewalks, and $1.6 million for stormwater management.
The plan continues the City of Rockford’s mission to increase funding for neighborhoods and infrastructure.
The 20th Street bridge, over Bypass 20, will see improvements, as well as upgrades to the Alpine Dam, Chestnut Street Bridge, and Keith Creek Bridge.
