Contractor of the Year Work Zone Traffic Control



The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has chosen Warning Lites of Southern Illinois (WLSI), owned by Columbia resident, Matt Fricke, as the Contractor of the Year in the Work Zone Traffic Control category.  The award was in recognition of the services WLSI provided Civil Coatings & Construction to complete bridge painting at various locations along I-74 and I-474 in Tazewell County and was presented at the AGCI/IDOT Awards Luncheon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Springfield on December 10.


The job consisted of lane closures, temporary pavement marking and width restrictions while Civil Coatings & Construction performed the bridge painting.  Freeburg resident, Bryan Rauckman, Traffic Control Supervisor with WLSI, was the lead on the project.
