NIRPC today released a 55 page staff analysis on the Illiana Expressway to guide regional decision makers as they debate the proposal to include the project as an amendment in their 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan. The report is mixed and does not take a stand on the project. Four NIRPC committees will take up the issue next month, the first of which is the Transportation Policy Committee on December 3rd, with the full NIRPC Commission voting on December 12th, and only the Transportation Policy Committee and Full Commission votes are binding on the inclusion of the Illiana Expressway into the 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan. INDOT has requested both the Illiana Expressway and the widening on I-65, between US 30 and US 231, be included in the amendment.
