That is a very good question.  There are traffic signal pay items listed - no permanent mast arms but a lot for a span wire signal.  Could be an interim fix?

I'm willing to bet a bridge replacement.  Many of those bridges haven't been touched since I-55 was widened there back in the late 1970s/early 1980s or so.  Nary a week goes by where at least one of these needs an emergency repair between IL-53 and County Line Road where there's a hole in the freaking bridge.

Lemont Road seems to be one of the better ones, oddly enough.

The IL-53 bridge on the other hand...

Harlem Ave over 95th is in a very similar shape, just waiting for that bridge to collapse

3467:
Some shoulder only projects like Illinois 1 last month . 34 near Earlville will have  4.5 foot on paved compared to the current 1.5. Not much consistency. 67 north of Monmouth 5 feet 125 near Pleasant Plains looks 7 or 8.P
Also looks like some projects moved up from next fy. Their money situation must be better.

Those pieces of wood are just to support human bodies as they work on building or rehabilitating the bridge deck/superstructure.  They bridge the gap between flanges with pieces of wood, and sometimes plywood is added on top of those; then people stand on top of them as they paint/saw/rebar etc. They have no real impact on the bridge's structural integrity, so the construction workers often just forget about them and leave some or all of them there.
