SPRINGFIELD (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/1cSKHgL ) 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.
