Board warns of IDOT road work shut down
State budget crisis spills over to major local road construction projects
"The state budget impasse is affecting every corner of our lives," said Suzanne Hart (R-Naperville), chair of the legislative & policy committee. "Very important road projects will soon be halted, and taxpayers will be on the hook for the additional expenses associated with stopping the work. We are calling on all Will County residents to contact your representatives and senators in Springfield and tell them this is not acceptable."
"Infrastructure projects, specifically road improvements, are vitally important to a county like ours that continues to grow and develop," said Speaker Jim Moustis. "The state needs to find solutions to its budget problems and make good on its commitments to taxpayers. It's simply unacceptable that 25,000 construction jobs will cease to exist on July 1 because state officials refuse to work out their differences."
