NORTHWESTERN ILLINOIS (WIFR) — A construction project that’s been talked about for decades in Northwestern Illinois, could be delayed even longer. 

Hundreds of cars drive on Highway 20 daily. It’s mostly a smooth ride until you get just west of Freeport, that’s when the road drops to two lanes. The Illinois Department of Transportation wants to change that by making it a four-lane roadway. The project would widen more than 50 miles from Freeport to Dubuque. The route is expected to be more convenient but also safer.
