Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth said in late February that she supported the the proposed Elgin O’Hare Expressway but in the same vein expressed uneasiness in its immediate implementation.


“I support the western terminal idea; I don’t know how achievable it is in the short term,” Duckworth said. “But, I think if we can get western access in any way, shape or form where it allows for people to get to the western edge, park and have a fast way of getting to the terminal — that would be a good start.” She cited O’Hare’s Airport Transit System, or ATS elevated trains that go to each terminal.


The extended Elgin-O’Hare Expressway would travel along Thorndale Road from its eastern terminus in Itasca to the airport and connect to a bypass that circles around the western side of O’Hare. What exactly will greet people when they arrive at the airport is still a question mark.
