The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Transportation, issued a notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal to develop a four-lane divided highway, known as the Heart of Illinois Highway, between Peoria and the interstate freeway system either north or east of Peoria. Three feasible corridors previously identified by Illinois DOT were to be examined as part of the EIS. The notice of intent to prepare an EIS for this project was published in the Federal Register on April 26, 2000 (Volume 65, Number 81).
Due to public opposition and lack of regional support, this project has been put on hold indefinitely. At this time there are no plans to prepare an EIS for this project.
Comments or questions concerning this notice should be directed to FHWA or the Illinois Department of Transportation at the addresses provided above.
