Gov. Pat Quinn announced funding for three more road construction projects for McHenry County under the Illinois Jobs Now! state capital plan.

Woodstock-based Alliance Contractors Inc. won a $1 million bid to replace the aging Franklinville Road bridge over the Kishwaukee River. The bridge is about a half-mile north of Route 176, between Woodstock and Marengo.

Work will begin to repair Route 120 over the Fox River in McHenry through a $487,975 bid by Copenhaver Construction Inc., of Gilberts.

Improvements are set to be made on Dean Street between Kimball Avenue and Prairie Ridge Drive in Woodstock, including building a sidewalk, storm sewer improvements and pavement markings. Triggi Construction Inc., of West Chicago, submitted the lowest bid at $170,449.

All three projects will be managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
