The report says about 60 Illinois bridges that were at least four years old have gone without recent or regular inspections. One bridge built in 1998 had only a single inspection on the books.

The Office of the Auditor General’s report examines inspection records filed as of May 1 for more than 26,000 working bridges in the state.

The report determined many of the bridges that went without being checked also have structural problems.

A state Department of Transportation spokesman says the agency is studying the report and did not have an immediate response.
