A public open house regarding the second tier of a study for the proposed Illiana Corrridor is scheduled for later this month. I-DOT and INDOT officials say the open house will focus on communities, landowners, and access need, along the preferred corridor, from I-55, near Wilmington, Illinois, to I-65 near Cedar Lake. Published reports say the proposed expressway would improve safety, reduce congestion and truck traffic on local roads, and improve accessibility to jobs while cutting commute times. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 18th, from 5 to 8pm, at Lowell Middle School.
