Share this post


In a display of solidarity Friday, both the governors of Illinois and Indiana endorsed the Illiana Expressway during a three-state regional summit at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The Times is reporting that the summit brings Northwest Indiana, Chicago and Milwaukee together as one region. Illinois governor Pat Quinn says that regardless of the type of transportation it is, “you have to go where the demand is.” Meanwhile Indiana governor Mike Pence says that when it comes to thinking regionally infrastructure matters, “because roads don't stop at state borders.” The two governor's approval of the expressway continues to face mounting opposition from Chicago, where in two weeks a vote takes place, according to the article.
