PEORIA, Ill. -- Governor Pat Quinn announced Thursday that $451,000 will be going to IDOT highway maintenance facilities in Peoria, Wenona and El Paso.

“This winter has caused us to realize just how vital these seemingly mundane facilities can be, and properly repairing and maintaining them will help us get ready for next year’s winter,” Governor Quinn said.

The projects involve roof repairs at Department of Transportation Team Section yards. The repairs will be done on the Peoria Maintenance Building and the salt domes in Wenona and El Paso.

The projects are part of Governor Quinn’s llinois Jobs Now! program.
