SPRINGFIELD – Building upon the smart infrastructure investments supported by State Senator Doris Turner, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced an investment of over $82 million in road and bridge improvement projects across Sangamon and Macon counties.

“We made a commitment to improve the state’s aging infrastructure,” said Turner (D-Springfield). “Investing in our roads increases safety, brings good-paying jobs and boosts the local economy.”

As part of IDOT’s latest Multi-Year Plan under Rebuild Illinois, the district Turner represents will see 16 infrastructure projects totaling more than $82 million next year.

These projects are part of IDOT’s Multi-Year Plan, a $40 billion investment in construction projects for the next six fiscal years. The project invests in all modes of transportation: roads and bridges, aviation, transit, freight and passenger rail, waterways, as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

“With this significant investment, Decatur and Springfield residents will see much-needed upgrades on the roads they drive daily,” said Turner.
