Design work is finished for the proposed MacArthur extension from I-72 to Woodside Rd., in Springfield, IL. Now all that is needed is some money.

“We’re ready for land acquisition. It’s just a matter of finding the money,” said Sangamon County highway engineer Tim Zahrn said.

MacArthur just finished an extension in 2010, and officials want to continue the road south to Woodside. Zahrn said a grant application will go in next month for $22 million in federal funding to help pay for the second extension of MacArthur Boulevard. The total project cost has been estimated at $36 million.

Sever Storey expects that about five-six parcels could be affected.
