Springfield and Sangamon County will each get more than half-a-million dollars for local road projects through the state’s public works program.
Other cities and townships in Sangamon County will split nearly $400,000 more in funding. Gov. Pat Quinn announced the money on Monday.
It represents some of the final funding from the public works plan, which expires at the end of the year.
Local officials say the cash will help them address a long list of needed local road improvements.
