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

A bicycle path including an underpass structure will be constructed in the Lake County Forest Preserve District just south of Round Lake on Wilson Road about 1.2 miles north of Illinois Route 120. The project includes excavation, pavement reconstruction, curb and gutter replacement, sidewalk replacement, lighting and landscaping. Dunnet Bay Construction Company of Glendale Heights was the lowest of three bidders at $3,231,219.

The projects are part of Governor Quinn’s $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! program, which will support more than 439,000 jobs over six years. Illinois Jobs Now! is the largest construction program in Illinois history, and is one of the largest construction programs in the nation.
