SPRINGFIELD -- The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to sell hundreds of piece of surplus heavy equipment on the state's online auction site.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports this month's sale will be the state's largest-ever web auction of surplus heavy equipment. About 550 items are set to be sold, including dump trucks, scoop loaders, backhoes, pickup trucks, cars and pavement rollers among other items.

The Department of Central Management Services has only sold IDOT equipment in a warehouse, not online.

The auction begins Monday and will end March 28. All the pieces will be sold through the state's website: ibid.illinois.gov.
