The latest update to the road plan calls for spending $9.2 billion dollars by the year 2018. That includes the last dollars from Illinois Jobs Now, which has pumped money into construction projects to create jobs. The plan includes $4 million dollars for repairs to the I-24 Ohio River Bridge as well as numerous resurfacing and smaller bridge replacements throughout the southern part of the state.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 01 May 2012 12:59:46 +0000 Gary Pitts 17813 at http://wkms.org
