 One exit and entrance at 87th exactly. So what is wrong with THAT "assertion"?

Because there is no proof that it would improve the neighborhood.

There is proof that NOT having them for FIFTY years is NOT improving the neighborhood.

What would WI do? They would have built a couple of roundabouts with gas, beer and cheese stores on every possible corner decades ago.

I'd love the link to the article stating that the absence of ramps is contributing to the degradation in the area :coffee: :coffee:

There is also proof that not having extraterrestrials visit Chicago has not improved the neighborhood either.

Both are about as relevant.

Wanna know what this and a certain never to be built expressway have in common? They're both figments of dzlsabe's imagination.

Stereotypically (rude) now? Okay, I can see where this thread will go.

How about we actually talk about existing Tollways and (officially) proposed ideas.

The Illinois Tollway will host a series of open house meetings as part of the agency’s ongoing work to plan for improvements to the Central Tri-State Tollway (I-294).

Monday, April 24, 6-8 p.m. – Hinsdale Oasis, Tri-State Tollway (I-294)
Tuesday, April 25, 6-8 p.m. – Lipinski Community Center, 7256 Skyline Dr., Justice
Wednesday, April 26, 6-8 p.m. – O’Hare Oasis, Tri-State Tollway (I-294)

As part of the 15-year, $12 billion Move Illinois capital program, the Tollway is developing a plan to determine improvements to be included in the reconstruction of the Central Tri-State Tollway (I-294) between 95th Street and Balmoral Avenue.
This is the only remaining segments of the original Tollway system constructed in the 1950s that has not been improved and modernized to meet current and future transportation needs.

Getting back on topic, anyone going to any of these?
