Draft Environmental Impact Statement (May, 2003)

This Draft Environmental Impact Statement discusses the proposed construction of U.S. Route 20 (FAP 301) from Illinois Route 84 northwest of the city of Galena in Jo Daviess County to Bolton Road northwest of the city of Freeport in Stephenson County. The proposed project will integrate the needs of increased development, system capacity, travel safety, community access, and system continuity. The proposed action will provide a high-type highway with an appropriate connection to the four-lane facility west of Illinois Route 84, and extending 75.6 km (47 miles) to the east, connecting to a previously approved four lane facility east of Bolton Road, northwest of Freeport.

Important issues and socio-economic and environmental concerns related to the proposed action include displacement of residences, right-of-way, traffic generated noise, agricultural impacts, visual resources, impacts to Section 106 properties, wetlands, and threatened and endangered species habitat.
