Illinois officials have announced the state will contribute an additional $10 million for road improvements on an interstate bridge project.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos, both up for re-election shared the plan Oct. 30 in Moline. The money will cover engineering and construction expenses along the south corridor of the new Interstate 74 bridge. A project engineer with the Illinois Department of Transportation said the south corridor extension will cost $20 million.

Illinois and Iowa are sharing the cost of the $885 million bridge, which will include six lanes and accommodate vehicles, bikes and pedestrians. The Quad-City Times reported Illinois has already committed $421 million throughout the next seven years.

Quinn said the project will create about 5,000 construction jobs. The bridge is expected to be complete by 2021.
