The completion of Illinois 255 and work on the Corridor 67 project is scheduled to wrap up at some point this spring.  Illinois 255 to the new Route 67 will take northbound traffic into Jersey county, and vice-versa.  Completion of that section is being complimented by work being done by the Jersey County Highway Department, on a road that links Delhi to Brighton.

Alan Gilmore heads up the Jersey County Business Association, and says Delhi Road is undergoing major improvements from Route 67, heading east.

Gilmore comments

The extension of 67 will play a part in moving traffic from St. Louis to the Quad Cities through west central Illinois.  The new Delhi Road will also play a part locally, with a tie-in to the Delhi Bypass once the state's work gets that far.
