[September 18, 2009]  SPRINGFIELD -- On Thursday, Illinois Transportation Secretary Gary Hannig announced another Web site aimed at providing more open access and transparency for the public. The new Bridge Information site provides detailed inventory and inspection data on all bridges and structures in Illinois.

"We want the public to have access to the information that is important to them," Hannig said. "This is yet another example of Gov. Quinn's vision to provide more transparency and accountability within state agencies, and we're happy to do our part."

The new online site will allow anyone with Internet access to locate and search for bridges by county, interstate, U.S. highways, Illinois highways, address or structure number. In addition to text searches for certain bridges, IDOT has built a robust mapping solution that lets users browse the online map for a specific bridge. Information can be obtained through a quick "simple" report or a two-page "detailed" report for each bridge. In addition, users can download detailed information for multiple bridges by county in a standard spreadsheet format.
