Let the project begin. I for one am looking forward to this. Potholes will be items of the past.

It'll be a pain while it's happening, but in the long run it will be a good thing.

Downtown Antioch is going to become a bottleneck tho, if it's 4 lanes everywhere else. Eliminating parking on the street could solve that, but would definitely be hard on our seniors. I don't mind using the lots behind the businesses and hiking, but the uphill on the east side could be hard on the older folks.

Sure, this ought to be great; everytime the government doesn't have any money, they "fix everything" by spending more. No point in doing this job when the coffers were almost full a few years ago when it needed to be done in the first place. Now, Illinois is staring down the barrel of a 7 trillion dollar deficit, declining revenues, reduced staff and budgets and now, now they say let's spend some more and everything will be fine.

Nothing to see here folks, move along...

It's not supposed to be four lanes, they've only agreed on making a three lane road using the center as a turn lane. No point if doing right if the governments involved. Why do it once correctly if you can do it now and then again in five years. Those contractors need to be paid back somehow.
