Congresswoman Robin Kelly, Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Bill Foster urge MPO to include Illiana Ex
In the letter, the Representatives urge members to support the inclusion of the Illiana, saying:
The Chicago Metropolitan Area as a whole benefits economically from its geographic location and existing transportation infrastructure. The Illiana Expressway is a necessary investment to enhance this benefit and to provide relief to the communities that currently bear the brunt of freight traffic in the region.
