IDOT’s Bridge Information site allows you to select a highway and the bridges along it to find out how it did during the most recent inspection.
One bridge included on the site is the Route 251 bridge over the Illinois River south of Peru. It lists the most recent inspection as June of last year.

Student’s swine flu diagnosis incorrect

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2009

In the future, Doster says he will wait for the public health department to confirm a swine flu case before reporting it to parents.
