Governor Quinn Announces $263,000 for Boat Access Project at Coffeen Lake
Project Will Improve State’s Infrastructure and Create Construction Jobs

COFFEEN – Governor Pat Quinn today announced more than $263,000 in capital investments to rehabilitate the South Pool Boat Access Area at Coffeen Lake Fish and Wildlife Area in Montgomery County. The project is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.

“It’s important to maintain and improve our natural resources areas so the public may safely enjoy them,” Governor Quinn said. “This project will also employ a number of construction workers, which will help the local economy as well.”

The work includes rehabilitating the South Pool Boat Access Area, including constructing a two-lane boat ramp, floating boat docks and courtesy docks, yard hydrants and drinking fountains, a new vault toilet, resurfacing parking lots and maneuvering areas, and providing a kiosk. The work also includes rehabilitating the existing island causeway, fishing trail, vault toilet, electrical utility and lighting revisions, signs, and landscaping. Lake Contracting, Inc. of Addieville, Illinois was the lowest of three bidders for the work at $263,089. The project will be managed by the Illinois Capital Development Board.

This project is being paid for with Department of Natural Resources Boating Funds, with 75 percent of the cost reimbursable through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
