IL Tollway’s Tri-State Tollway Widening Project Draws Opposition

The Doings (via Chicago Tribune) reports, “A community information meeting [on February 27], attended by about 200 people, was only the first step for Hinsdale in opposing a developing plan to widen Interstate 294. [Link deleted.] While the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority hasn’t yet finalized plans, it has been working for more than two years on a master plan to reconstruct I-294 [link added], also known as the Tri-State Tollway, from Balmoral Avenue on the north to 95th Street on the south.” The village president tells the newspaper “there are plans to form a citizens committee and for the village to have its own traffic survey completed.”
