LINCOLN – Governor Pat Quinn today announced a capital investment of $838,000 for a renovation project at the Lincoln Correctional Center. The project is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.
“This construction project will address life safety issues at this critical Department of Corrections facility,” Governor Quinn said. “It will also employ a number of construction workers, which will help the local economy as well.”
The entire temperature control and fire alarm system in 13 buildings at the Lincoln Correctional Center will be replaced. The ventilation work will be done by Environmental Control Solutions, Inc. of Springfield, the lower of two bidders at $400,000. The electrical work will be performed for $438,195 by Ruyle Mechanical Services, Inc. of Peoria, the lowest of five bidders. The facility is administered by the Illinois Department of Corrections. The project will be managed by the Illinois Capital Development board.
This project is part of Governor Quinn’s $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! program, which will support 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.
