(KMOV) -- Illinois Governor Pat Quinn warns that 52,000 state employees could lose their jobs if lawmakers do not approve money for road and bridge construction projects this summer.

The state's budget crisis is currently threatening the completion of a major road project on Route 159 in Collinsville.

The construction to widen Route 159 will end about one and a half miles shorter than planned.

The state, as of now, cannot afford to finish the stretch of road between Jackson Street and Kinloch Avenue.
