EFFINGHAM - The Illinois Department of Transportation has launched a new website to inform the public about the reconstruction and widening of Fayette Avenue (U.S. 40/U.S. 45/Illinois 33) through Effingham. The $27 million project, made possible by Gov. JB Pritzker's historic and bipartisan Rebuild Illinois capital program, will increase capacity and improve safety for both motorists and pedestrians while creating good-paying jobs and long-term economic opportunity.
