Also, voters want Pritzker to build a Prairie Path bridge over Mannheim Rd. at Warren Ave. between Hillside and Bellwood for maximum safety.  Other villages have built bridges like this over busy roads for pathways.  To pay for the bridge, voters want Pritzker to shut down a controversial state project in Hillside that was never built and reassign its $2 million state grant.
