State providing funding for Grundy, Will County projects

GIBSON CITY – Gov. Pat Quinn announced last week capital investments of more than $1.6 million for construction projects in several counties, including Grundy and Will.

The projects aim to create jobs and improve transportation safety and efficiency, according to a news release from Quinn’s office, and are funded by the Illinois Jobs Now! construction program. The Illinois Department of Transportation will manage the projects.

In Grundy, LaSalle and Will counties, the Illinois and Michigan Canal will receive 138 historical markers and way-finding signs from the city of LaSalle to the village of Romeoville for $53,684 by Western Remac Inc. of Woodridge, the lowest of four bidders.

Funding also will go toward pavement patching on Interstate 55 between McLean County line and Grundy County line for $460,950 by G. M. Sipes Construction Inc. of Rushville.
