The Illinois Dept. of Transportation (IDOT) has launched a new web site aimed at providing detailed inventory and inspection data for all bridges and structures in Illinois.

The new web site will enable anyone with Internet access to search for bridges by county, Interstate, U.S. Highway, Illinois Highway, address or structure number. In addition to text searches, the site offers a mapping solution that lets users browse the “on-line” map for a specific bridge. Information can be obtained through a quick “Simple Report” or a two-page “Detailed Report.” In addition, users can download detailed information for multiple bridges by county in a standard spreadsheet.

The new site joins IDOT’s Construction Dashboard web site, launched in August, which provides up-to-date information about all active construction contracts, including those funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, after contract execution. For more information, go to
