Interstate 57/74 Interchange Reconstruction

Home

The I-57/74 interchange located just west of Champaign was designed in 1958 and built in 1965. It’s outdated design no longer meets current traffic volumes and demands and has experienced operational issues due to deficient geometric features.

This multi-year rehabilitation project is a culmination of four related projects to rebuild a critical regional freight juncture serving almost 40,000 vehicles per day with nearly 25% being freight trucks.

The new modern design for the interchange will include two flyover ramps to improve safety and traffic flow efficiency for travelers in the region: Eastbound I-74 to northbound I-57 and westbound I-74 to southbound I-57. A third, auxiliary lane will also be added to both directions of I-74 between Prospect and Duncan Roads.
