IDOT has launched a website aimed at getting feedback for a proposed extension of Herrin Road in Williamson County.

The extension would provide more direct access to Walker's Bluff, which is in the process of expanding to include a casino and events center.

There are two proposals for the new road - both would run from the existing roundabout on Cambria Road, ending at a proposed roundabout at Reed Station Road, near Walker's Bluff.

Feedback on the plan will be accepted through November first via this link.

Former WSIU Associate Director of News and Public Affairs Jennifer Fuller joined Capitol News Illinois in July 2023 as the organization’s broadcast director.
