Perhaps the reason it is closed again is to perform an inspection and fix the problem. Why is it necessary to comment to the press? We have the information we need right now - the restaurant is closed.

Illinois announced $2.9 Million for road projects in Western Illinois

Includes work in Adams, McDonough and Pike counties

The state of Illinois today announced capital investments of more than $2.9 million for road projects in Adams, McDonough and Pike Counties, part of his Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program.

“Our investments will make it safer and more convenient for motorists traveling through western Illinois,” Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said. “The projects will also employ a number of construction workers, which will drive the local economy forward.”

The projects will be managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Adams County: Two box culverts carrying U.S. Route 24 over the Frazier Creek Tributary and a drainage ditch will be replaced for $684,915 by County Contractors, Inc. of Quincy, the lowest of three bidders.

McDonough County: A new bridge will be constructed to carry Wigwam Hollow Road over the east fork of the LaMoine River in Macomb for $1,370,820 by County Contractors, Inc. of Quincy, the lowest of five bidders.

Work on University Drive in Macomb from Wigwam Hollow Road to North Western Avenue will be completed for $269,643 by Gunther Construction, a division of United Contractors Midwest, Inc. of Galesburg. The work includes milling, curb and gutter replacement, sidewalk replacement, pavement markings, signs, and other items.      

Pike County: County Highway 11 from Township Road 337 to Martinsburg, a distance of just over three miles, will be resurfaced for $669,435 by Rock Solid Stabilization & Reclamation, Inc. of Ringwood, the lower of two bidders. The project uses a process called full depth reclamation, where old asphalt and base materials are pulverized, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a strong, durable base. Since full-depth reclamation uses the old asphalt and base material for the new road, there’s no need to haul in aggregate or haul out old material for disposal. Truck traffic is reduced, and there is little or no waste.
