If they spent money on roads that would take away from giving it to their special interest groups or themselves for that matter.
If you ride from Mount Carroll to Scales Mound to Galena then down to Savanna you will find some great roads.

Eff them politicians in Illinois, we're out. When enough people do that they will finally wonder where their next meal is coming from and then things will change. I wasn't willing to pour any more good money after bad by waiting it out.
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run...
We read the writing and ran - don't regret it for a second.
