The Lincoln Trail project has been put on hold, and the reason why is something many across the state have been hearing for a few years. The budget impasse in Springfield is causing this road construction project in Taylorville to be put on hold.
IDOT spokesperson Kelsea Gurski says the department wants to make sure they have the appropriations to pay contractors before they start the project.
Gurski tells about what IDOT will be doing on the Lincoln Trail once the project begins.
The project is now anticipated to begin July 10th, with construction work lasting 20 to 45 days.
