Funds from Illinois Jobs Now! Program will Help Area Cities and Counties Tackle Numerous Transportation Projects and Create Jobs

PLAINFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today joined local and area officials to announce $3.7 million from his Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program that can be used to repair municipal, township and county infrastructure in Will County. The funds are in addition to the annual Motor Fuel Tax revenues these municipalities are scheduled to receive this year. Today’s announcement is part of Governor Quinn’s commitment to address local transportation needs, create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.

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

The $3.7 million announced today is part of the fourth in a series of annual grants that have come to municipalities for local transportation projects under the Illinois Jobs Now! program since 2010. 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.”
