Call for Action - Proposed Illiana Expressway to help alleviate congestion on Borman in NW Indiana ?...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

Just to paraphrase an email we received today from our local board->

The Greater Northwest Indiana Association of REALTORS...

Reminder of a Public Hearing that will take place

Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 7:00 PM, Crown Point High School auditorium,

1500 S. Main Street in Crown Point.

On the Proposed Illiana Expressway - a Tollroad  that would connect I 65 in Northwest Indiana with I 55 near Joliet, IL.

There have been pro's and con's to this for several years to the point it is now a topic indexed on WIKEPEDIA

Here's a link to the Final feasability Study with maps of the Area that would be affected.

More Roads and better infrastructure & therefore connectivity with our neighbors to the West in IL is needed to relieve congestion and support the expansion and growth our counties in NW Indiana are experiencing - not sure about the public / private partnership part of this proposal ?

more will be reveled after this meeting for sure as the news media and blogs will certainly offer editorial comments.

Way to get the word out and may the chips fall where they may. I am always interested in local politics and the way the thoughts of local folks are handled.

Jeff & Grace, I'm curious what the board will say...there are so many things to take into consideration.  We have a huge proposal here with many arguments on both sides and we still don't know where it will go....

Hi Charles - Thanks - this project has an expected completion date way into the future and the situation of crowed roads due to growth exists now :0 should be an interesting debate.

Hi Carole - Yes there are - is your proposal for more roads as well?   Our REALTOR board sent out a well written statement  as pro...we shall see what happens.

thanks to you both for taking time to stop by and comment.

Sincerely,Grace
