^ There's a difference between easy to build and a motivated DOT/Toll Authority working to build the project, the latter of which is lacking for the corridor.

Even if they were motivated, there are still environmental issues which they wouldn’t get clearance for (they’ve consistently said this), plus the massive amount of $$$ it would cost to build at this point would be an obstacle (it would be way more than the main IL-53 extension would cost).

Any dreams of FAP 420 died in the mid-90s IMO.

Way back, should have connected the 53 X-way to IL 83 to near Buffalo Grove. 

At least put in 4 lane IL 120, please, :paranoid:
