Rawlings Highway named

People gathered on an overpass on Liberty Road, west of Jacksonville, overlooking U.S. Route 67 as highway workers unveiled a sign that read, “Dick Rawlings Memorial Highway.”

The Illinois Senate approved a resolution in January after it passed the House last spring. The stretch of Route 67 that has the Rawlings designation goes from Liberty Road to Interstate 72.

Rawlings served as the Chairman of the Corridor 67 committee and was a big player in expanding Route 67 to a four-lane highway locally.
