In 2011, IDOT completed the study of IL 336, the Peoria to
Macomb Highway. The Federal Highway Administration signed the
Record of Decision on June 6, 2011, thus ending the study phase
of the project.
The Department has identified the rights-of-way needed to build
IL 336 from Peoria to Macomb. The project has entered the design
phase, but construction of the project is not currently funded.
To ensure the right-of-way is available for the future
construction, IDOT has initiated the Corridor Protection process
along the right-of-way from Peoria to the west side of Canton.
Corridor Protection is a legal process (Illinois Highway Code
605 ILCS 5/4-510) designed to establish the approximate
locations and widths of the rights-of-way for future additions
to the State Highway System, to inform the public and to prevent
costly and conflicting development of the land involved.
Once a corridor is established, IDOT performs a survey and
prepares a map showing the corridor and approximate right-of-way
needed for the future highway. This map will be available for
public viewing at the public hearings. Afterward, the map, with
any changes resulting from the public hearings, will be approved
and filed in the Office of the Recorder in all counties in which
the corridor lies. All owners of record of the land identified
within the corridor will be notified individually within 60 days
of the filing.
After these notices are given, the property owners are not to
begin improvements or developments without giving IDOT a 60-day
advance notice. After receiving notice from the property owner,
the Department then has 45 days to decide whether or not to buy
the right-of-way and an additional 120 days to complete the
purchase or start condemnation. If the property owner builds an
improvement without giving such notice, the Department does not
have to pay for the improvement when the right-of-way is
