Congresswoman Goes to Bat for IL Tollway in Land Fight with Canadian Pacific Railroad

Daily Herald reports, “Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth has asked federal regulators to intervene on behalf of the Illinois Tollway in a standoff with the Canadian Pacific Railroad over land for a western bypass road to O’Hare International Airport.” The report adds, “Duckworth . . . took the tollway’s side Friday [September 23] in a letter to the U.S. Surface Transportation Board, saying that ‘through their misleading actions and current legal tactics,’ Canadian Pacific had ‘endangered a vital infrastructure project’ that is expected to create thousands of jobs.”
