$275 Million More Possible for Illinois Roads This Year
DOT wants to use $275 million of that this summer, which would be a 15 percent increase over the $1.76 billion planned for work this year statewide. A spokeswoman says Senate Democrats will decide Wednesday whether to include the request in this week's three-day session. Assistant Majority Leader John Sullivan - a Rushville Democrat - says he favors the idea if transportation officials satisfactorily answer how they will spend the money.
