Governor Quinn Announces $219,000 for Construction Project at Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area
Project Will Improve Infrastructure, Create Jobs and Boost the Local Economy

CARLYLE – Governor Pat Quinn today announced capital investments of more than $219,000 for a construction project at Eldon Hazlet State Recreation area in Clinton County. Funded by his Illinois Jobs Now! construction program, the project is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.

“State park projects like this one are the type of work that maintains our infrastructure while putting people to work,” Governor Quinn said.

The park office and maintenance buildings at Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area on Carlyle Lake will be rehabilitated in a project managed by the Illinois Capital Development Board. The project includes roof, wall, ceiling, floor and electrical work on the park office. The project also includes new interior spaces, climate control system and wall panel work in the maintenance building. The general construction will be done for $151,404 by Bruce Unterbrink Construction, Inc. of Greenville, the lowest of seven bidders. The asbestos abatement will be performed for $67,600 by Cenpro Services, Inc. of Madison, the lowest of three bidders.

The 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 construction program in Illinois history, and is one of the largest construction programs in the nation.
