Upgrade 74, the rehabilitation of I-74 from Pinecrest Drive in East Peoria, IL, to I-474 in Peoria, IL, is the Illinois Department of Transportation’s largest road construction project in the history of the southern part of the State. The project Web site at www.upgrade74.com contains several interesting features, including a number of computer-generated video clips that offer a 3-D perspective of the new roadway as if the viewer were in a helicopter flying above the highway or in a vehicle driving down the road. Users simply click on any one of a dozen movie clips in the Project Gallery to download and view the 3-D renderings of the planned improvements.
