[August 20, 2008]  SPRINGFIELD -- The 50th District is slated to receive over $34 million in funding from the Illinois Department of Transportation for several new and ongoing road improvements, according to Sen. Larry Bomke.

Fiscal 2009 road projects for the 50th District include almost $3.7 million for land acquisition; approximately $27 million for resurfacing, re-profiling and paving roadways; over $2.1 million for jurisdictional transfers; $550,000 for bridge work, $l.3 million for modernization of traffic signals, left- and right-turn lanes, and culvert replacement; as well as $100,000 for right of way surveys of land acquisitions and $100,000 for plan preparation of design surveys.

Bomke commented: "Iím pleased with the recent funding from IDOT, but this in no way undermines the need for a capital improvement program. The state is in desperate need of this money in order to improve our roadways and our schools."
