Illiana Expressway (Whether or Not It’s Built) Impacts Illinois County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan

The Herald-News reports that the Will County Board approved a new long-range transportation plan, “Will Connects 2040,” on March 16. “The plan looks at two different scenarios – one with the Illiana Expressway and one without it,” the newspaper notes. As to the proposed 50-mile toll road, “the plan states the Illiana would improve regional east-west mobility and accessibility, and offer an alternative route for truck traffic from Interstate 80.” The final plan will be posted on the website.
