SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today announced more than $382,000 in capital investments for needed roof and repair work at Springfield’s Camp Lincoln. The project is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to maintain the state’s infrastructure, create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.
“Our state’s military facilities are important parts of our infrastructure, and it’s important to maintain and improve them,” Governor Quinn said.
The AGO Building at Camp Lincoln, a facility operated by the Illinois Department of Military Affairs, will receive a new 22,000-square-foot green roofing system including associated flashing, drains and gutters. The 87,669-square-foot building, constructed in 1978, will also receive interior repairs, tuckpointing and window sealing. Designed Roofing Systems, Inc. of Springfield was the lowest of three bidders at $382,000. The project will be managed by the Illinois Capital Development Board and uses federal funds administered by the State of Illinois.
Governor Quinn’s $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! program is supporting more than 439,000 jobs over six years. Illinois Jobs Now! is the largest capital construction program in Illinois history, and is one of the largest capital construction programs in the nation.
