Kentucky conducted a study a few years ago, identifying a feasible alternate route through Kentucky and Southern Illinois from the I-24 area in Paducah to I-55 in Missouri.  Illinois Department of Transportation District 9 Program Development Engineer Carrie Nelson tells KZIM-KSIM that from that study has come a cooperative agreement between the states, and an effort to ease travel is underway.  Nelson says this is a long term project, and you can find more on the website they have created:, including maps and a link to join their mailing list.
