Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Highway Code. In a provision providing that the Illinois Department of Transportation may establish the approximate locations and widths of rights of way for future additions to the State highway system to inform the public and prevent costly and conflicting development of the land involved, requires the filing of an environmental impact study along with a notice of approval of the map and a copy of the map in the office of the recorder for all counties where the land needed for future additions is located. Requires the Department to hold public hearings to discuss the viability and feasibility of each protected corridor not more than 10 years after the protected corridor is established in accordance with the provisions of the Code, and not later than the expiration of each 10-year period after the establishment of the protected corridor. Requires the Department to give due consideration to the information obtained at that hearing and to abolish the protected corridor if construction of the roadway is no longer feasible. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the original bill, but makes the following changes: (i) removes language requiring the filing of an environmental impact study; (ii) provides that the hearings shall be held regarding every protected corridor, regardless of whether the corridor is established before or after the effective date of this amendatory Act; (iii) provides that in the case of a protected corridor established prior to 10 years before the effective date of this amendatory Act, the hearing shall be conducted within 6 months of the effective date of this Act; and (iv) provides that the Department shall retain the discretion to maintain or abolish any protected corridor. Effective immediately.
