Southern Illinois counties gear up for construction projects

Several counties in Southern Illinois now know how much money they're getting to put towards construction projects.

Edwards County is getting $162,498 that will go towards patching and resurfacing some of Route 130 North.

Wayne County is using its $690,543 to do micro-surfacing and pavement work on I-64.

Wabash County will be repairing County Highway 11 and will reset pipe culverts from County Highway 7 to one mile west of Allendale.

That means the intersection of Illinois Route 1 and County Highway 11 will be reconstructed. 

All of the projects are part of the governor's Illinois Jobs Now program.
