Corridor 67 construction just north of Godfrey remains at or ahead of schedule, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. The multi-million dollar grading and paving project from Godfrey to Delhi continues, with much of the focus now on that project with Illinois 255 nearly complete. The final stretch of 255 between Humbert Road and Godfrey Road may be open by Thanksgiving.
Improving the highway from a 2-lane road to a 4-lane divided highway should be done by next spring, according to IDOT Engineer Joe Gasaway.
The US 67 Corridor in Illinois will extend nearly 223 miles when complete, from Interstate 280 at Rock Island to I-270 south of Alton along a north south alignment in west central Illinois. Gasaway reminds that even though there is plenty of wide-open space between Godfrey and Delhi, motorists are still subject to the construction zone speed limit of 45 miles per hour.
