  • Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn recently announced a capital investment of more than $2.9 million for a bridge replacement project in Henry County, part of his Illinois Jobs Now capital construction program.
    “Our investment will make travel along Route 6 safer and more efficient,” Quinn said. “The project will also employ a number of construction workers, which will help the local economy.”
    The bridge carrying U.S. Route 6 over Mineral Creek about a mile east of Green River Road will be replaced for $2,915,555 by McCarthy Improvement Co. of Davenport, Iowa, the lower of two bidders.
    The project will also involve the replacement of several culverts carrying U.S. Route 6 over drainage ditches in the area. The project will be overseen by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
    “By providing funds to make improvements in Henry County along Route 6, we are further enhancing the infrastructure throughout the 36th District,” State Sen. Mike Jacobs (D-Moline) said.
    “Route 6 is a vital part of the network of roads that help make the Quad Cities a regional economic hub,” State Rep. Mike Smiddy (D-Hillsdale) said. “We need to ensure that it continues to bring needed jobs and economic development to our district, especially in Henry County.”
