More money has been approved to redo Chicago's Circle Interchange.
Gov. Pat Quinn announced Thursday that he has released $42.5 million for the ongoing project. The total cost of the four-year project is $475 million. The latest money will pay for a bridge at Halsted and Harrison streets and new approaches. The Circle Interchange is where several major expressways come together just west of the Chicago Loop.
