Wrong date for the construction of Elgin Bypass[edit]

The reference to 1984 gives the date for dropping the "Business 20" designation in town. I have vivid memories of the Bypass bridge over the Fox river being constructed in 1957. More research is needed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Racepacket (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I didn't notice there wasn't any reference to the construction of the actual bypass on Rich's page. Most of the research has to be done offline, because aside from his page, we don't have anything to go off of. —Rob (talk) 19:08, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Description for Il-25 interchange not really complete[edit]

The current description of the IL-25 interchange isn't really complete. It mentions the split exit ramps WB, but doesn't accurately describe the multiple entrance ramps EB, nor does it pinpoint the ramp positions well. I know the whole area is confusing due to routing the bypass smack through an existing neighborhood, but I'd propose the following description instead:

"Eastbound, there is one exit to IL-25 25 in Grace Street, terminating at Bluff City Blvd. Traffic then travels two blocks east on Bluff City to southbound IL-25 (St. Charles St), and one block further to northbound IL-25 (S Liberty St). There are two eastbound entrance ramps from Bluff City Blvd, one in Grace St, the other 5 blocks east in Lavoie Ave.

Westbound, there are separate exits for northbound and southbound IL-25. Northbound traffic exits at a ramp in Illinois Ave, then proceeds one block west to northbound IL-25 (S Liberty St). Southbound traffic exits into Grace St, then turns back east one block to St. Charles St, then one block south to IL-25 at Bluff City Blvd. There is one entrance ramp westbound, in Grace St, with access via Dwight St." Kmz 19:27, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

It's worth a shot; alternatively, an SVG image would speak for many words. —Rob (talk) 20:00, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
OK, I have an SVG file generated from OpenStreetMap for use, but I'm not an autoconfirmed user, and can not upload it to Wikipedia. Can someone help me out here? I can send the SVG via email to anyone with sufficient privileges. Kmz (talk) 19:42, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
