US 30 Environmental Impact Statement and
Phase I Design Report
What is the scope of this project?
The scope of this project is to enhance the transportation system within Whiteside County and to facilitate the safe and efficient traffic flow throughout the region. In order to improve the safety and mobility of the roadway, it is anticipated that additional lanes will be required along a new or somewhat different alignment, a new routing around Morrison and possibly interchanges along the improvement. Due to the significant size of the project study area, there are many social, economic and environmental issues to address in developing these enhancements. IDOT is implementing an approach to public involvement consistent with their
Context Sensitive Solutions guidelines to accomplish the task of providing an enhanced transportation system and addressing various issues throughout the project area. These guidelines were established to ensure a high level of public involvement in the project study process.
