News Bridges For Utica And Spring Valley In The Works

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2013

Some major construction money will be spent in the Illinois Valley in the coming years.

Over the next five years, the state plans to do over 300 million dollars of construction work in La Salle, Bureau and Putnam County.  The biggest projects are replacing the Route 178 bridge in Utica and the Route 89 bridge in Spring Valley.  Both of these projects are planned to be built within the next five years.  Both bridge replacements will cost well over 20 million dollars.

Work is expected to start this year on a passenger rail line connecting Chicago to the Quad Cities.  Parts of the line will go through Bureau and La Salle County.  This project is estimated to cost over 220 million dollars.
