This project will extend 143rd Street to Illinois Route 126, north of Plainfield’s Central Business District, to provide better east-west movement of vehicles. The project will consist of roadway, a bridge over the DuPage River, sidewalks, a center median, street lighting, an enclosed drainage system, and redesigned intersections.

U.S. Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-IL-14) today announced that the Village of Plainfield has been awarded $5 million in federal funding to construct the eastern extension of 143rd Street, which will help alleviate traffic and improve safety for vehicles traveling through and within the Village. The funding was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant program.
