IL Tollway Battle with Canadian Pacific Heats Up

Crain’s Chicago Business reports, “A bitter dispute between the Illinois Tollway and Canadian Pacific Railway is going public, and it threatens to derail long-anticipated plans for western road access to O’Hare International Airport and construction of a bypass road around the airfield.” The report adds that tollway chairman Bob Schillerstrom “charges that, after a recent change in management, CP has walked away from negotiations over using some of its property needed for the Elgin-O’Hare Expressway and now refuses to talk at all.”
