XIke is pretty much surrounded by tolled roads, maybe it is time for it as well.

What is the point of allowing such a critical slab to be trampled N/C by a shipload of interstate traffic?

"XIke"? What in the hell is that? I assume you mean "The Eisenhower Extension." You know you don't have to make up new names for everything.

"N/C"? No charge?

I'm of the opinion that 290 should end at the 290 / 355 junction, then 355 takes over the old 290 portion, as well as the IL-53 parts north of 90.

I'd add that I-290 should be scrapped altogether and replaced with I-88 east to the Circle, and the remnant should become I-188.

The only portion of Interstate 290 that should be tolled are along the proposed/potential toll lanes. Tolling the existing general-purpose lanes would be a no-go.
