State officials have announced nearly $500 million in construction projects slated to begin this spring. IDOT released a list of nearly 200 road and bridge projects. In northern Illinois, the list includes:
-$14 million to replace a railroad bridge over Illinois Route 25.
-$4.7 million dollars to build a new roadway and bridge over the South Branch of the Kishwaukee River in Huntley.
-$4 million has been set aside to replace the structure carrying Illinois Route 40 over the Hennepin Canal Feeder in Rock Falls.
-$3.5 million for road construction in Marengo
The money comes from a capital construction program, Illinois Jobs Now!, and a supplemental appropriation lawmakers approved earlier this year.
