IDOT: Bridges Are In Good Shape; Future Funding A Concern


State transportation officials are wondering where the money will come from to pay for ongoing upkeep and maintenance of thousands of Illinois bridges. 

 

Illinois ranks well above the national average in terms of bridges in good condition, but about 1 in 12 bridges around the state are listed as “structurally deficient.” That includes more than a dozen in the immediate Springfield area. 

 

IDOT officials say as long as a bridge is open, it is safe to travel… but they also wonder how to maintain that track record once funding from the “Illinois Jobs Now” public works program runs out.
