A strong highway system connects cities acros the United States. Residents here are only a few miles away from cross-country interstates: I-44, I-55, I-64, & I-70, as well as I-255 & I-270, which provide a bypass loop around St. Louis County and the Metro East. From a nostalgic perspective, two of the nation's most recognized two-lane highways run through the area. Historic Route 66 runs right through downtown Edwardsville, while Route 50, the nation's only coast-to-coast two-lane highway, skirts the southern extremotoes of Madison County.
Statewide infrastructure initiatives have improved the major highways through Edwardsville & Glen Carbon. Highways 159 & 157, the main arteries in both communities, have been widened and expanded, and phase two of the cross-city thoroughfare, Governors Parkway, is complete, giving residents a quick route across town.
