IDOT Could Halt Road Construction Due To State Budget Impasse

Roadwork projects across Illinois could be on the chopping block as the state’s historic budget impasse continues. The Illinois Department of Transportation will shut down roadwork statewide if lawmakers don’t pass a budget by the end of the month, officials announced Wednesday. “Due to the General Assembly’s refusal to pass a balanced budget, the Illinois Department of Transportation loses its ability to pay contractors starting July 1,” IDOT communications director Guy Tridgell said in an email.
