The Sycamore Room at Woodland Park in Portage is packed this morning. On the agenda for the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) Executive Board Full Commission meeting this morning (being held at Woodland Park because of the anticipated large turnout) is a pivotal vote on the proposed Illiana Expressway, a 47-mile tollway linking Interstate 65 in south Lake County near Lowell to Interstate 55 in Illinois. Board members are scheduled to have their say on whether or not to include the project in NIRPC's 2040 Comprehensive Plan, an important step toward moving the highway forward for federal dollars.
