Kendall is just going to be hillbilly central with Yorkville as the capital. With the truck traffic thats going to be on hwy 47, Yorkville will be a lesser place to live. Im sure the guy who purchased all the property by the bridge on hwy 47 aint happy, cant have an outdoor restaurant patio or outdoor area on 47 with the smokey, noisy truck traffic
