Illinois 47—US Route 14 to Charles Road
Project Overview

Where Are We Now?

Alternative Development and Evaluation

The IL 47 study has concluded the alternatives development phase of the process.

The study team consolidated stakeholder input from the previous public meetings, conducted additional refinements, and developed the preferred alternative that best meets the project's Purpose and Need. The preferred alternative for IL 47 from US 14 to Ware Road includes two travel lanes in each direction separated by a raised-curb median / left turn lane. The preferred alternative also includes a sidewalk and a shared-use path.

An Environmental Assessment (EA), which documents the evaluation of the preferred alternative and potential impacts, was presented at the Public Hearing on June 7, 2018.  View the EA. View the errata to the EA.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has determined that the proposed IL 47 (US 14 - Charles Rd) Improvement Project will have no significant impact on the human environment. The FHWA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) based on the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the errata to the EA. View the FONSI.
