CHICAGO – The state of Illinois is giving local governments $100 million to help repair roads and address other transportation needs following a particularly brutal winter.

Gov. Pat Quinn announced the funding during a news conference in Chicago on Monday.

The money comes from the $31 billion statewide capital construction plan that Illinois lawmakers approved in 2009. It’s the fifth year that cities have split the $100 million in transportation funds.
