Senator Turner


SPRINGFIELD – Central Illinois communities will see more than $400 million in funding for road and bridge projects over the next six years as part of the Illinois Department of Transportation’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) announced Thursday.

“The Rebuild Illinois program is the largest infrastructure investment in Illinois’ history, and continues to have a transformational impact on Central Illinois,” Turner said. “This financial commitment is not just about streets and highways or roads and bridges. It has a much larger and life-changing impact. Through this funding and Investment infrastructure we are invigorating communities, promoting healthy living spaces, spurring economic development, and putting people to work in good union jobs right here in our own neighborhoods.”

The Multi-Year Plan will invest $20.7 billion statewide over the next six years to maintain and preserve Illinois’ existing roads and bridges, with a special emphasis on the National Highway System (NHS) and structurally deficient bridges on that system. There are 6,976 miles of state-maintained roads and 4,077 bridges (totaling 59,754,519 square feet of deck area) on the NHS.

Projects included in the program were selected based on objective criteria, such as pavement conditions, traffic volumes and crash history.
