The completion of the Route 67 project between Godfrey and Delhi is progressing at a nice clip, but plans to open the corridor before the end of the year have been scrapped.  The work north of Godfrey Village Hall is turning the narrow 2-lane road into a 4-lane expressway, but IDOT Engineer Joe Gasaway says the weather forecast has delayed what could have been an end of the year opening.

Gasaway comments

Gasaway reminds the area is still considered a work zone, with a speed limit of 45mph.  You could be subject to a $375 ticket if you are caught speeding through the work zone.  Cell phone use is also banned for drivers through work zones.  You can find a link to IDOT's U.S. 67 page here:
