The Illiana Expressway will not help Indiana. Valuable land and water will be decimated or compromised. Trucks will refuse to pay tolls to use the road. Only a low percentage of traffic on the Indiana Toll Road or I-90 is truck usage.
At one time, Indiana had the largest migratory bird passage in North America because of the wetlands around the Kankakee River. To gain farm acreage, Indiana foolishly straightened the Kankakee and destroyed habitat of wildlife and fauna. If Indiana supports the Illiana, more wetlands will be lost.
Indiana needs to protect Indiana’s resources.
As Executive Editor William Nangle mentioned in an earlier column, the north-south highways in Northwest Indiana need to be improved. Ask any local truck driver about the bottlenecks and backups.
Indiana should support Indiana projects, not the Illiana which is a benefit to Illinois residents and a future Illinois airport.
