Do we know everything about the Illiana expressway?
I recently read a story in my September issue of Trains magazine about the Illiana Expressway being planned for the southern suburbs.
I did not know that a major rail line is included in the right of way for the expressway.
The article details at least a two-track line with space for expansion that would create a 90-mile industrial park along this route. Planners are projecting 50 to 100 trains a day on this line.
I am all for alleviating congestion on the region rail lines, but are our politicians again trying to sneak in development that the current landowners in this area may not know about?
