Gov. Quinn announces $5.3M for southern Illinois transportation improvements

Posted: Updated:
MARION, IL (KFVS) -

Governor Pat Quinn was in Marion on Sunday afternoon announcing a major investment into southern Illinois communities.

The Governor announced $5.3 million from his Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program that can be used to repair municipal, township and county infrastructure in southern Illinois.

“These investments will be used to improve roads in communities throughout southern Illinois,” Governor Quinn said. “By investing in local transportation, we are creating jobs and improving quality of life for families throughout the area.”

According to Gov. Quinn, the projects will be selected and managed locally, with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) providing oversight.

“This installment of capital funds for local transportation projects demonstrates our continued commitment to local governments,” IDOT Secretary Ann Schneider said. “These local projects will improve the quality of life for residents, stimulate the economy and address immediate infrastructure needs.”

In addition to the Illinois Jobs Now! funds announced today, local governments in southern Illinois will receive approximately $30.6 million in Motor Fuel Tax funds this year.

The county, municipal and township governments receiving funds are listed below.
