Eastern Bypass Study

From Interstate 74 to Illinois Route 6 — Tazewell, Woodford, and Peoria Counties

A Context Sensitive Solutions Project

The Eastern Bypass project is currently in the first of a two part (or “tiered”) environmental study.

  • Tier 1 will identify one or more broad paths, or "corridors."
  • Tier 2 will select one specific location for the proposed new highway, located within the corridor identified in Tier 1.

The chart below illustrates the entire highway development process. For a larger version, click here.
