Not only did the Illinois Department of Transportation sign off on the road maintenence program with R.L. Brink Construction, an attorney delivered the signed contract Monday afternoon in person.
Quincy City Engineer Jeff Steinkamp says he received the signed paperwork from an IDOT attorney Monday afternoon at around 2:30 p.m.
Steinkamp added that pre-construction meetings will be held Tuesday morning and Brink could begin construction as soon as the end of the week. The work is expected to take about 25 working days.
The work is estimated to cost about $560,000 and includes resurfacing 20 blocks of streets in Quincy. Brink was approved for the project by the city back in July, but IDOT would not sign off on the project because part of the funds were from the department.
IDOT suspended Brink from all state-funded projects Aug. 22 because allegations claiming the company violated policies regarding classifying employees and reporting them to IDOT. A temporary restraining was issued Sept. 4 by an Adams County Judge. Then on Friday, Sept. 28, the judge ruled that IDOT was in violation of that order.
