Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider, along with state and local leaders, Friday announced the beginning of a $40.6 million project to build the Biggsville Bypass, a new four-lane expressway segment in Henderson County. Funded by Governor Pat Quinn’s Illinois Jobs Now! capital program, this project will relocate US 34 to a new alignment south of Biggsville, from 1.5 miles east of  IL 164 to 1.9 miles east of IL 94. The project will include construction of nearly six miles of four-lane expressway, with three bridges, a new interchange at IL 94/IL 116, drainage improvements, and earth embankment. State Senator John Sullivan of Rushville says construction of this portion of Highway 34, the  Biggsville Bypass, is a huge step forward for the Western Illinois region.  State Representative Jil Tracy of Quincy agreed saying this project will be extremely beneficial for area residents and communities.  When it is completed, the Biggsville Bypass will serve as the first completed section of a four-lane highway corridor for US 34 in Henderson and Warren counties. Two-way traffic will be maintained on US 34 and IL 94/IL 116 throughout the construction process. Anticipated completion is November 2014.
