$5.8 million in bridge projects planned in Bureau, La Salle counties

NT Staff

Gov. Pat Quinn announced capital investments of more than $5.8 million for bridge replacement projects in Bureau and LaSalle Counties, part of his Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program. 


The bridges carrying I-80 over the Hennepin Canal, about one mile west of the Illinois Route 40 interchange, will be replaced for $5,233,015 by D Construction, Inc. of Coal City, the lower of two bidders. The work will also involve the construction of crossovers so traffic may continue to flow during the work, and resurfacing along I-80 in the vicinity of the project. 

The bridge carrying Illinois Route 71 over a tributary of the Fox River will be replaced for $567,905 by Stark Excavating, Inc. of Bloomington, the lowest of three bidders. 

”I want to commend Governor Quinn for the release of the funds to upgrade these bridges. It is because of Governor Quinn’s leadership that we were able to get the capital bill that provides funding for these bridges,” said state Rep. Don Moffitt (R-Gilson), according to a state press release. “These projects continue in our efforts to make Illinoisa safer place to live and travel. Repair of these bridges shows the importance of having a capital bill for Illinois. It also shows why we will need additional capital building programs in the future as there are even more bridges in need of repair.”
