The City of Quincy’s Capital Infrastructure Improvement Project has won the American Public Works Association – Illinois (APWA-IL) Public Works Project of the Year in the category “Transportation, $5 Million but less than $25 Million.” This multimillion-dollar project was designed by the City of Quincy and Klingner & Associates, P.C. (Klingner).

A total of 90 city blocks, including 40 intersections, are being rehabilitated by the City of Quincy as part of this five-year plan. In addition to road work, the project also covers new sidewalks and driveways, sanitary sewer replacement, installation of ADA corners, and drainage improvements.

“We are proud to receive the APWA IL Project Award recognizing the significant infrastructure project that the City of Quincy has taken on,” said Mayor Mike Troup. “Our Professional Engineering staff and our contractors and subcontractors have each contributed to this award improving Quincy’s infrastructure.”

The plan, which was approved by City Council in August of 2019, began construction in 2020.

APWA-IL annually recognizes individuals, groups, and organizations for outstanding public works contributions. Project awards recognize an entire public works project team and are issued in seven different categories.
