[October 07, 2013]  Last week Gov. Pat Quinn announced a capital investment of $838,000 for a renovation project at the Lincoln Correctional Center. The project is part of the governor's agenda to create jobs and drive Illinois' economy forward.

"This construction project will address life safety issues at this critical Department of Corrections facility," Quinn said. "It will also employ a number of construction workers, which will help the local economy as well."

The entire temperature control and fire alarm system in 13 buildings at the Lincoln Correctional Center will be replaced. The ventilation work will be done by Environmental Control Solutions of Springfield, the lower of two bidders at $400,000. The electrical work will be performed for $438,195 by Ruyle Mechanical Services of Peoria, the lowest of five bidders.

The facility is administered by the Illinois Department of Corrections. The project will be managed by the Illinois Capital Development Board.

This project is part of Quinn's $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now program, which will support more than 439,000 jobs over six years. It is the largest capital construction program in Illinois history and one of the largest capital construction programs in the nation.
