US 60 Connectivity Study
The US 60 Connectivity Study will examine the impacts of developing a more direct corridor
between US 60 in western Kentucky and I-57 in southern Illinois.
The Study Process
The US 60 Connectivity Study is a Planning and Environmental Linkage (PEL) study. PEL studies aim to consider environmental, community, and economic goals and use the collected data, analysis, and products to inform the environmental review process—namely the decision-making process outlined in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This study requires the PEL process because there is a signed NEPA document for the US 51 Bridge Replacement project.
