Lockport 355 Commuter

For the past few days while commuting along I-355, I've seen some big trucks on the west side of 355. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

I get on and off of 355 at 159th, so I don't know if there has been any activity south of 159th St, but there seem to be a few places between 159th and 127th where there have been what looks like drilling machines and cement trucks.

My guess is they are building billboards, but that is only a guess.

Along the whole stretch of 355 through Lockport ComEd is doing work. Also from 151st St to 143rd St Heritage Crossing business is clearing land and starting some prep work. If you drive Gougar Rd. To where it curves and becomes 147th St you can get a closer look.

Buildings need power.
No infrastructure = no new development
