Route 29 between Taylorville and Springfield is finally complete. One important figure to the project was Randy Blankenhorn, Secretary of Transportation for Illinois, who spoke during a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the highway on Tuesday. Blankenhorn said he’s glad that the project has finally been completed.
Blankenhorn said the upgraded highway will improve safety and help connect communities, and wanted to thank those who helped work on the project first hand.
