The Illinois Department of Transportation is conducting a study of an eastern bypass that would join Interstate 74 with Illinois Route 6 in the Peoria Metropolitan area.

A public informational meeting for the Eastern Bypass Study will be held 3-7 p.m. Sept. 15 at Countryside Banquet Facility, 659 School St, Washington.

Members of the IDOT Project Study Team will be available to answer questions and receive comments about the proposed project. The focus of the meeting will be the preliminary corridors that have been developed during the past several months by IDOT and the study’s Community Advisory Group.

Displays and exhibits will be presented showing the corridors currently being considered, how those corridors were developed and refined during the course of the study, and what steps are next in the process.

The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. If special accommodations are needed, contact Tom Lacy at 671-3333.
