US 50 Expressway

In 2010, the Illinois General Assembly appropriated $5 million for the expansion of US 50 and included funds for preliminary engineering from Richland County to Lawrence County. We are conducting the Phase 1 Engineering studies which include environmental impact studies, detailed traffic and land use studies, and preliminary engineering studies that are necessary in order to be able to spend federal and state transportation funds on land acquisition and construction for a 4-lane expressway. Part of the Phase 1 studies includes public involvement in the Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) process. For up to date information, we invite you to visit the project's website.
