 State Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, says newly passed legislation will bring $13.8 million in state funds to Jersey County to aid in repairing Illinois Route 3.

Beiser's House Bill 3794 appropriates over $13 million into repairing Route 3. These funds will be used for both widening and resurfacing over six miles of the roadway. This project is part of a statewide $1 billion investment into repairing and replacing infrastructure across Illinois. The funds used for these projects will not require the state to take on any additional debt.
