  The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) welcomes you to the official website for the proposed US 20 Galena Bypass.

The Galena Bypass was the first segment of the proposed 47 mile Glacier Shadow Pass Freeway to receive funding for Phase II design engineering. The first stage of this detailed design involved the preparation earthwork plans for the Galena Bypass. These plans were completed in May of 2013. Pending receipt of additional funding, roadway and structure plans for the various bridges located along the proposed bypass will be developed, thereby completing the design engineering work. Limited funds have been made available to purchase right-of-way required along the Galena Bypass corridor. However additional funding is needed to complete this land acquisition phase. Additional funding is also needed before construction of the proposed bypass could begin. As such, a construction timeline is not available at this time.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is initiating a funding and financing study for the US 20 corridor. The study is expected to be completed in October of 2014.
