U.S. Federal Route 67
Morgan County

U.S. Federal Route 67 does a "U" shape line through western Morgan County. It enters Morgan County from Scott County heading northeast, then near Woodson it heads north to Jacksonville. At Jacksonville it turns northwest, and exits into Cass County.

In June, 2005 a new 9.2 mile extention of the Jacksonville By-Pass was opened. U.S. Rt. 67 was routed along it's path. This eliminated the multi-plex with I-72, U.S. Rt. 36, and IL St Rt 267. In the fall of 2005 a four-mile extention of the by-pass was finished on the northwest side of Jacksonville.

U.S. Rt. 67 passes through the following towns in Morgan County.
Bethel

Chapin


When U.S. Rt. 67 was routed along the 9.2 miles expressway southwest of Jacksonville, it was not longer multi-plexed with Interstate 72, U.S. Rt. 36, and Illinois State Route 267. Below are photos from the old path.
