Gov. Pat Quinn on Wednesday announced an investment of $565,000 for road construction projects in Will County, including pavement patching at Bolingbrook weigh stations.
The projects are funded by Quinn's Illinois Jobs Now! construction program.
“These projects will make sure our Will County infrastructure is well-maintained to improve safety and longevity,” Quinn said. “The projects will also employ a number of construction workers, which will drive local economies forward.”
Pavement will be patched at the Bolingbrook weigh stations along I-55. The work at the northbound station will be done by G.M. Sipes Construction, Inc. of Rushville for $174,699, the lowest of eight bids. The work on the southbound station will be done by Vixen Construction, Inc. of Bridgeview for $162,557, the lowest of eight bids.
Pavement patching will be done at the southbound Peotone Weigh Station for $164,262 by Triggi Construction, Inc. of West Chicago, the lowest of five bidders.
The Village of Frankfort will receive some improvements to 80th Avenue from Laraway Road to Sauk Trail. The work involves new sidewalk, curb and gutter and pavement markings. Davis Concrete Construction Company of Alsip was the lowest of ten bidders at $64,055.
The projects will be managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
