Henry, Rock Island and Whiteside Counties will be the recipient of new Illinois Jobs Now! construction funds. Governor Quinn announced an investment of $7.7 million for construction in the area.

"These projects will repair a key bridge and improve traffic flow and safety in the Quad Cities area, which benefits everyone," Governor Quinn said in a release. "The project will also employ a number of construction workers, which will drive local economies forward."

Here is a list of where the funds will be headed:

Henry County

Illinois Route 92 will be patched and resurfaced from four-tenths of a mile east of the Rock River to Illinois Route 78 in Henry County. Valley Construction Co. of Rock Island was the lowest of three bidders at $2,374,921.

South Cambridge Blacktop will receive cold-in-place pavement recycling, seal coating and pavement striping from County Highway 9 to Illinois Route 82. Dunn Company of Decatur was the lowest bidder at $817,886.   

Ranch Road from Atkinson Road to Smith Street in the Village of Hooppole will be resurfaced using the cold-in-place recycling technique for a distance of 6.03 miles. The lowest bidder was Dunn Company of Decatur at $789,194.

Rock Island County

The U.S. Route 67 bridge over the Mississippi River in Rock Island will be repaired for $3,352,501 by General Constructors Inc. of the Quad Cities from Bettendorf, Iowa, the lowest of four bidders. The project will include structural steel repairs and related work. The project will be managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

A bridge carrying Illinois Route 92 over Turkey Hollow Creek three miles east of Andalusia will be resurfaced in concrete for $315,000 by Brandt Construction Co. of Milan, the lowest of three bidders.
