Welcome to the US 51
Environmental Impact Statement
The US 51 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being conducted by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The purpose of this planning study is to evaluate a transportation improvement between CR 900N (south of Pana) and CR 2150 N (east of Irvington) that will meet local and regional needs while improving safety and enhancing mobility.
The Illinois Department of Transportation held a series of public information meetings on November 5, 6, 10, 12, and 13, 2014. The purpose of the meetings was to present the US 51 Preferred Alternative. To view materials presented at the meetings click here.
