Illiana expressway nixed by planning group, but project still has some support

Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s board votes Wednesday on the future of the Illiana expressway, the east-west highway connecting Will Co., Illinois, to Lake Co., Indiana. A staff analysis by CMAP recommends that the project not be included as part of the GO TO 2040 plan for the Chicago region, citing high financial risk and low priority for regional expansion. Northwest Indiana reporter Michael Puente details which groups fall where on the debate for the highway, and what its future might be. Photo: Flickr/pobrecito33
