The Governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels, has proposed
a new expressway, the Illiana Expressway, to be built
in Indiana and Illinois. Nothing wrong with that as
the Borman Expressway in Lake County is very congested,
and as the busiest Semi-Truck highway in America it
needs relief. However, this new expressway is slated
to run very near Ray Smith Farm and my parent's
house. Please see the Red Dot on the attached map.
I've read that it will run north of Boone Grove which
would take it two miles north of their house which isn't
quite so bad, but if they deviate only a mile or so it
could be horrible, especially since it's being designed
to cater to truck traffic. As I find out more, I will
try to report it here. This is very disturbing.
