Bridge improvement could take a while

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) -- The Illinois Department of Transportation's (IDOT) plan to widen the Kirby Avenue overpass by I-57 could take longer than expected.

It was supposed to happen in 2022. However, IDOT says the last repairs have to be in place for 15 years before federal funding can be available. The earliest an improvement project could happen would be 2027.
