Four open house dates have been scheduled in November by the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission regarding the Illiana Expressway. Recently we spoke with NIRPC's Mitch Barloga who says the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning's Board is expected to vote this week on the matter, after its transportation committee voted last week in favor including the Illiana Expressway in its transportation plan. He says NIRPC's full board will take a vote on amending its regional plan to include the expressway on December 12th.
The first open house is scheduled for November 2nd, in Gary, from 10am to 12pm, at Indiana University Northwest. For a list of open house dates, times and locations, including information regarding public comment, visit http://www.nirpc.org/illiana-expressway-project.aspx
