Bike Route 66 Continues to make progress in Illinois. The Current 366 mile route has about 55 miles of off road trail. More projects are adding to the off road totals. Construction began last week on the 3.7 mile Bike Trail along Highway 66 from South Bloomington to Shirley Illinois. Completion is expected this fall. Construction of the 7/10 mile extension of the Constitution Trail Main North South Branch (also part of Bike Route 66) in Bloomington is also continuing with completion of that segment expected this summer. Also at the last meeting of the Bike Route 66 Central Committee, McLean County announced they are applying for grants that would build a trail segment from North Normal along Route 66 to the Towanda Bike Trail. Logan County Officials announced they had signed Bike Route Segments in Logan County.
