Illinois Route 67 from Godfrey to Delhi has been opened at the 255 interchange. That means you can now drive from Columbia, Illinois to Jerseyville without dealing with a single stoplight., This is a major step in the project, with only intersection work at Montclaire Avenue and Godfrey Road remaining.
IDOT Engineer Joe Gasaway says the road will still be under the 45mph construction zone speed limit, as there are still a few things left to do.
The next phase of extending Route 67 to the Quad Cities is on hold while funding is found for the leg from Delhi to Jerseyville.
