Gov. Pat Quinn unveiled two more state construction projects Thursday. The state is making investments in two colleges. Quinn’s first stop was at Illinois State University in Normal, which is getting $54 million to build a new fine arts complex. That project will create 775 construction jobs, the governor’s office says. The project includes renovating three buildings and constructing new space for instruction and performance.

Quinn also stopped at South Suburban College in South Holland, where he announced a building addition to the college’s medical program. The state’s $41.6 million will help build an “allied health addition” that will help train students for the medical field. The project will create 750 jobs. The money for both projects comes from the capital program.
