A recent audit of the Illinois Department of Transportation shows event though the department is getting more money the roads are getting worse.
The audit points to sloppy bookkeeping.
Money that should be going to roads is actually paying down other administrative costs instead.
The audit shows that over the past few years IDOT has spent $700 million more than before, while one in seven roads need work.
IDOT says it's working on fixing all of the problems found in the audit.
The department says that the reason the roads are getting worse is because they are spending more money on bridges instead of roads.
