US 67 Corridor

This website will focus on the status of the current effort to improve this alignment along its entire length. Many sections of the corridor have been placed on the Department’s multi-year program with the intent to develop it into a multilane divided highway configuration over most of its length.

A map showing the alignment and the various sections being improved is available on this website. Each of the various sections can be highlighted to display the current status and progress.

You are encouraged to address comments to the Department. An email link is available directly to the Department or if you prefer, the proper mailing address for directing your concerns about each of the various sections will be available.

For a basic introduction into IDOT’s overall Transportation Plan and how to be involved, a link is furnished to another informative IDOT website. www.IllinoisTransportationPlan.org

Note: IDOT projects typically have three distinct phases. Phase I (or the project Study) consists of developing the project scope, environmental studies and preliminary design of a project. Phase II (Design) consists of refining the design to develop contract plans and land acquisition. Phase III (Construction) consists of the actual construction of the project.

 

The existing US 67 Corridor extends nearly 220 miles from Rock Island south to Alton. The two and four lane corridor improvement costs awarded to date total more than $929 million, $4.6 million is programmed in FY 2013 and $109 million in projects are programmed during FY 2014-2019. Of this total, $1.7 million is programmed in FY 2014. The estimated unfunded cost to complete the four-lane sections in the US 67 corridor from Macomb southward to the Alton Bypass exceeds $1.7 billion.

The US 67 Corridor in Illinois extends nearly 220 miles from Interstate 280 (I-280) at Rock Island to I-270 south of Alton along a north south alignment in west central Illinois. US 67 is predominately 2 lanes with the exception of the following multi-lane divided highway sections:

  • Macomb to Monmouth
  • 24 mile section that bypasses Jacksonville on the west
  • Alton Bypass (IL 255)

IDOT is currently at the early stages of Phase I for this project. Funding for Preliminary Engineering, Land Acquisition, Design and Construction is available in the Governor’s FY 2015-2020 Proposed Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Program. Although Phase III (construction) is part of the overall project development process, construction is not a foregone conclusion.
