The "green-hadists" are against all economic growth - they stop progress with fake lawsuits that have no merit.

Remember that often these green challenges allow for last minute adjustments in route of these roadways. This provides connected local politicos to get their hands into the Federal and State funds. The EPA and tree huggers are a pain...but often they are nothing but a smoke screen for more taxpayer theft.

Yes i understand that but the way this is looking we will see southwest airlines fly out of peotone airport before this road is built, i live in Wilmington, im also a business owner !! so i want this ROAD TO BE BUILT.I heard that southwest airlines has only 2 years left on their contract with Midaway and that they already agreed to fly out of Peotone, the people just doesn't know what this means? JOBS JOBS AND MORE JOBS

NO AIRLINE HAS EXPRESSED ANY INTEREST IN PEOTONE!!!!!
So let's take a couple BILLION to build a road nobody wants to an airport nobody wants to provide short term jobs for road builders, who can be utilized better repairing roads we have.
Have the people who want it give THEIR home locations so we could pay 50 cents on the dollar for THEIR property, force THEM to relocate, but they could only relocate next to the INVESTORS EXPRESSWAY, CHINA EXPRESSWAY or HIGHWAY TO HELL, all appropriate names for this new POLITICAL HACK HIGHWAY!
Good luck to the environmentalists, at least in this case.
