Governor Pat Quinn announced capital investments of more than $19.5 million for construction projects in multiple counties, including Washington County.  The projects are part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to create jobs and drive Illinois’ economy forward.  Illinois Route 127 in Nashville from north of Mockingbird Lane on south to Holzhauer Drive at the high school, will be patched and resurfaced, and traffic signals and guardrails installed, north of town, for $1,617,175 by Howell Paving, Incorporated of Mattoon, the lowest of four bidders.  Last November, the Nashville City Council agreed to the plan with the Illinois Department of Transportation to put in traffic signals at Mockingbird Lane and Illinois Route 127, resurface 127 from Holzhauer Drive going north to close to Little Nashville, as well as for the parking lanes on 127 from East Elm Street going north to the train tracks at East 1st Street.  The project would be 80 percent funded by the Federal Government, with 10 percent by the State and City each. But IDOT reported that no federal money would be available for the parking lane resurfacing, so the cost to the city for the entire project would go up from approximately $16,000 to $22,252.  The Council approved this to do all the work now and not wait for IDOT to resurface in the area again to do the parking lanes separately.
