Members of an Illinois tollway advisory council tossed around ideas to fund a Route 53 extension Thursday, noting that sharing the cost regionally instead of locally will ease the pain.

Tolls on the proposed roadway would pay for only a fraction of the cost, leading to an estimated gap of $2.47 billion.
