Dear Mr. Collins:

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has approved the de-designation request submitted by Jersey County on July 3, 2002 and transmitted to the FHWA by the department on September 20, 2002. De-designation has been approved for Illinois 100 from the Greene County line south to the northern boundary of Pere Marquette State Park, including that part of Illinois 100 adjacent to the Legate property on the south side of Pere Marquette State Park.

Enclosed is a copy of the September 27, 2002 letter from the FHWA informing the department of the approved portions of the Jersey County de-designation.

If you have any further questions regarding this issue, please call Pam Murphy of this office at 217/785-1250.
