Millions of dollars in state grants are earmarked for Starved Rock State Park. That’s according to State Representative Lance Yednock.

The Democrat who is being challenged by Republican Jason Haskell says he’s secured commitments from the state for much-needed infrastructure work at Starved Rock. Additional infrastructure upgrades according to Yednock will be announced soon for Matthiessen State Park, Illini State Park and the I&M Canal.

As far as Starved Rock improvements, the list includes: trail work to Tonti Canyon, La Salle Canyon, and French Canyon; replacing a bridge and stairway near Pontiac Canyon; upgrades to the park’s water filtration system; and electrical upgrades to nearly 60 campground sites.

Yednock says initial funds have been released for priority projects and planning work will being later this year.
