Description: 

The US Route 51 project will evaluate the feasibility of several alignments based on social, economic, environmental and engineering issues.  The limits of the study extend from U.S. CR 900 N (south of Pana, IL) south to the CR 2150 N (east of Irvington).  The study area for this project includes the counties of Shelby, Christian, Fayette, Washington, Jefferson, Marion, and Clinton.

Increases in US 51 traffic volumes, operational issues, State economic initiatives and complete or nearly complete four-lane expansion projects to the north of the study area have prompted an urgency to revisit the investigation of upgrading this section of US 51 to a four-lane facility.
