ILLINOIS (WIFR) -- The cold weather certainly isn’t helping with potholes and perhaps that’s one of the reasons Illinois roads are ranked so poorly.
They get a D+, according to a new report card released by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The study says 73% of Illinois roads are in poor or mediocre condition and those bumpy roads cost state drivers nearly two and a half billion dollars a year in extra vehicle repair and operating costs, nearly $300 per driver. Illinois is right on par with the rest of the nation, which also got a D+.
