Local governments get infrastructure money

WNIJ news – The northern Illinois region stands to benefit from a capital investment plan announced by the governor. $100-million in funding is being doled out, to help local governments repair potholes, repave roads and replace traffic signals. The money will be distributed through the same formula that's used for the state's Motor Fuel Tax. Local governments in nine counties, including Winnebago, DeKalb and LaSalle, will share more than $6-million dollars of the announced funding. In addition to the infrastructure projects, officials say the move will help spur job growth.

Specific funding amounts:

Winnebago County - $756,150
DeKalb County - $228,308
Stephenson County - $126,183
LaSalle County - $284,667
Boone County - $119,652
Ogle County - $151,572
Lee County - $96,241


City of Rockford - $651,902
