SCHERERVILLE | It was sort of a homecoming for Paul Shafer Jr. at Illiana Motor Speedway Saturday night.
SCHERERVILLE | Eddie Hoffman was almost ready to settle for a second place finish at Illiana Motor Speedway Saturday night and then the yellow caution flag flew.
U.S. Rep. Peter Visclosky agreed to meet with us to discuss the need and purpose of the Illiana Expressway. We presented our facts on how the road wouldn't benefit Indiana, much less Lake County and Northwest Indiana, stated facts and figures, offered viable alternatives that would reduce co…
I challenge Rich James and others who feel a tingle up their leg about the Illiana Expressway to answer the following:
The Indiana and Illinois transportation departments are fast-tracking the process of imposing the private Illiana tollway.
So Indiana House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, believes gays should have the same rights he has.
Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson really shot herself in the foot by voting for the Illiana toll road. All that money could be used to upgrade the Gary/Chicago International Airport and surrounding area.
The Northwestern Indiana Planning Commission vote to build the Illiana was the biggest stab in the back to the residents of south Lake County by the NIRPC members.
U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Illinois, said the Illiana Expressway would be a “drag strip to eastern markets” for Illinois intermodal trucks.
Do you want to see multiple competing political interests — the ones typically bent on ripping out each others' throats — join hands in a semblance of harmony? Just propose an interstate tollway through the serene rural area of an otherwise industrial county.
This is in regard to two past Marc Chase columns: “A Northwest Passage?” and “NIRPC should sharpen its listening skills.” Thanks from all the NIMBYs for two unbiased columns.
In Ellwood, a south suburb of Joliet, 1,000 trucks a day are loaded with import containers to be distributed throughout the Midwest. Those containers need to be returned in three days or else rent is charged. Illinois needs our roads to shorten their drive to Indiana, Kentucky or Ohio.
MERRILLVILLE | U.S. Sens. Dan Coats and Mark Kirk are throwing their support behind the Illiana Expressway, the proposed $1.3 billion highway that would link Interstate 55 in Illinois with Interstate 65 in Indiana.
Regarding your Nov. 13 editorial on the Illiana Expressway, both state administrations have now dropped all pretense that the Illiana will be genuinely "built with private dollars."
The Times has again opined on its support of the Illiana Tollway. The Oct. 21 editorial includes, “The details of that arrangement need to be worked out.”
It's sad that Indiana officials continue to deceive Hoosiers about the Illiana Toll Road.
Certain elements of our society, usually "progressive leaders," dub some naysayers to particular government projects NIMBYs.
Do we know everything about the Illiana expressway?
Per Trains magazine, a professional railroad industry publication, also proposed for the Illiana corridor in Indiana is a new two-track (or more) Illiana Belt Railway, extending from Wellsboro, Ind., as well as Coal City and Kankakee in Illinois, all converging on Peotone, where a huge freig…
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.
