ILLINOIS (RFD) — The state has started to spend the billions that are part of Rebuild Illinois. It begins today with the release of the Illinois Department of Transportation multiyear plan. Laid out on paper is the path forward for IDOT to improve the state’s transportation system. Republican State Rep. Ryan Spain says the first $23 billion spent this year will be critical to develop the state’s economy.
The multi-year plan is twice the size it was before because of the state’s higher fuel tax.
