BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - There are plans to build a tourism center in McLean County focusing on the area’s Route 66 history and Abraham Lincoln heritage.

The Pantagraph reports (https://bit.ly/1wOVfJZ ) that the McLean County Museum of History is requesting bids to construct the center. Museum executive director Greg Koos says the museum also has applied for a nearly $250,000 state tourism grant for the project. The rest of the project would be paid for through the Bloomington-Normal Area Visitors and Convention Bureau.

Bids are due June 17. Koos says he hopes the project could be finished within 90 days.
