IDOT has announced that due to the Illinois budget impasse they will be stopping all road construction on June 30th. My first reaction to this was, "yay!" but then gave it a bit more thought. Does this mean they just barricade lanes and routes they've been working on so it will be even more difficult to get past?
Actually the Metro East doesn't have all that much IDOT work going on so it wouldn't affect us that much.
Another question is, will this action if carried through be taken up by public schools in the fall and they not open? It's time Illinois legislators start working together and stop standing on partisanship and get a budget passed.
