Planning Commission applying for $3M federal funding

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is applying for federal funding to help further the Eastern Bypass. That project would connect Interstate 74 with Illinois Route 6 in the north-east-region of Peoria. The Commission is applying for up to $3 million in Tiger Grant money. The next step in the study is to pick a proposed route for the bypass within a specific corridor. The money is part of $36 million in Tiger money available nation-wide for planning projects
