Rep. Niemeyer, Councilman Strong
Republicans Lowell State Representative Rick Niemeyer and Lake County Councilman Eldon Strong of Crown Point Thursday announced they have taken a stand against the proposed Illiana Expressway.  They're urging members of the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission to not include the project in NIRPC's 2040 plan, a vote scheduled in December.  The highway would travel by Lowell through south Lake County connecting I-65 to I-55 in Illinois. Strong says money would be better spent on existing projects, like the Gary/Chicago International Airport expansion and revitalizating the Region's Lake Michigan lakefront.
