IL Governor Backs Tollway over Canadian Pacific RR in O’Hare Access Dispute

Crain’s Chicago Business political columnist Greg Hinz reports that Governor Bruce Rauner’s administration has asked the US Surface Transportation Board “to rule in favor of the tollway in its suit against the Canadian Pacific Railway, which has refused to make property it owns available for the long-planned project [to provide western access to O’Hare International Airport] even though the tollway claims it long has had a gentleman’s agreement to do so.”
