An Illinois state construction agency is introducing a new website that makes it easier for builders to watch for upcoming projects and track payments for ongoing work.

Capital Development Board Executive Director Jim Underwood says it will help companies learn more about projects they want to bid on -- including the state's "green" building initiative and school construction.

The "Business with CDB" section identifies upcoming work and explains the bidding process. It allows visitors to track payments for completed work and get information on Illinois building codes or visit a reference library.

There are other sections for frequently requested information and the site even has a "How do I?" tab.

CDB oversees all non-road, state-funded construction projects.
