Bridge Data Available On New IDOT Website
Public to Get More Access to Bridge Information

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Transportation Secretary Gary Hannig today announced another website aimed at providing more open access and transparency for the public.  The new Bridge Information website provides detailed inventory and inspection data on all Bridges and Structures in the State of Illinois.

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

The new website will allow anyone with Internet access to locate and search for bridges by County, Interstate, U .S. Highways, IL 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 “on-line” map for a specific bridge.  Information can be obtained through a quick “Simple Report” or a 2-page “Detailed Report” for each bridge.  In addition, users can download detailed information for multiple bridges by County in a standard spreadsheet format.

For more details, visit the new bridge information website at http://wrc.dot.il.gov/bridgeinformation.

In August, IDOT launched its Construction Dashboard website which provides up to date information on all currently active construction contracts, including those funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, after contract execution.  For more information, go to www.dot.il.gov/dashboardpublic
