Staff report

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn announced capital investments Thursday of more than $19.5 million for construction in several counties - including Johnson, Massac, Pulaski and Williamson counties - as part of his Illinois Jobs Now! program, a $31 billion capital construction program.

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

Johnson County: Windows and security louvers at the Vienna Correctional Center will be replaced for $2,149,000 by Pauly Jail Building Company Inc. of Noblesville, Ind., the lowest of six bidders.

The Illinois Capital Development Board will manage both projects.
