CHICAGO | A key committee at Chicago's Metropolitan Agency for Planning on Thursday gave the Illiana Expressway an important bump forward as controversy over the project continues to build.
A 30-day public comment period has opened on the final environmental impact statement for the Illiana Expressway in advance of a final federal decision on the project.
Residents living along the planned route of the Illiana Expressway are growing more concerned as drill rigs and surveyors make appearances on properties and states prepare to round up final approvals.
The public can comment on the Tier II Draft Environmental Impact Study and the route chosen for the Illiana Expressway at two public hearings next week.
The first step in a two-step process toward approving the Illiana Expressway will take place Tuesday when a Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission committee votes on the controversial bi-state project.
The state of Indiana may pay upfront costs of as much as $110 million for the Illiana Expressway's construction and may make payments of up to $70 million to investors shortly after completion, according to a document provided to regional planners Tuesday.
BRISTOL, Ind. | Gov. Mitch Daniels stood close enough to an Indiana Toll Road exit to almost be drowned out by trucks at times Wednesday as he celebrated the fifth birthday of the "jobs deal of a generation."
