Millikin Visitors

The City of Decatur is undergoing major road construction which may impact your travels to campus.

road construction 72

U.S. 36 Eastbound and Westbound over U.S. Business 51 are closed for repair. This map provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation shows construction that will occur this year at U.S. 36 east and west at both bridges going over U.S. 51.

Due to the bypass closing, travel from the west to Decatur on Interstate 72 will present a significant detour. This detour is well-marked and will lead you directly to Millikin University.

  • Use 72 east from Springfield
  • Exit on the 51 bypass South towards Pana
  • Exit on State Route 48
  • Turn right onto Route 48 North towards Decatur (3.5 miles)
  • Millikin University will be on your right


We wish you safe travels and look forward to seeing you on campus!
