U.S. 6 Study from Ashton Road to Illinois 47 in Morris


The Illinois Department of Transportation is currently conducting a preliminary engineering and environmental study (Phase I) for the improvement of U.S. 6 in the city of Morris. The study limits include U.S. 6 (Bedford Road) beginning west of Ashton Road and extending east to Illinois 47 (Division Street), over 2 miles. Funding for a portion of this improvement is included in IDOT’s Proposed Highway Improvement Program Fiscal Year (FY) 2023-2028.

The study involves reconstruction of U.S. 6 to provide the appropriate number of lanes to accommodate anticipated traffic. The project also includes drainage and safety improvements as needed. Pedestrian, ADA and bicycle accommodations will also be considered per IDOT’s Complete Streets policy.
