City of Channahon Village President Joe Cook said Monday evening that the “A3S2” route option is no longer a choice for Illiana and that the Wilmington area would be the likely choice for the Illinois end of the interstate highway.

A map of the Illiana options can be found here.

If what Cook says is true, the Illinois section of the highway would be the “B3” route–with a possible split into the “B4” route toward the Indiana border.

What Does this Mean for Illinois Landowners: It means, for all intents and purposes, the Illinois route has been selected. “B3” has for much of the project been considered the primary and most likely route of the highway, and Cook’s words all but confirm it. Landowners on this route should begin prepping themselves for a fight against the state and immediately contact an attorney.
