Three years???????? I88 has been under construction for at least 10 years! Maybe Tollway Authority years are really like dog years - 10 years is really 3 Tollway Authority years.

And in another five years, ten more years of work will be needed.
The Car is dead! Long live the Car!
Seriously. Ten years is enough time to build several new rail lines. Not just rail lines. Good rail lines.
In those ten years, Bus Rapid Transit stops could have been installed along the highway, like they have in Curitiba, Brazil, Bogotá, Colombia and in Jakarta, Indonesia. No need to take the car into the city. Just walk to the nearest on ramp. A bus stop will be right by it.
In those ten years, Illinois could have taken a serious bite out of our CO2 emissions.
In those ten years, we could have gotten rich a few times over with no bid contracts.
I feel like those ten years have been a waste.

I guess sarcasm is lost on you.

Other than the I-88 needing more road work in five years time, along with the I-90 to meet increased traffic demands between the out lying counties and Chicago's inner city, most of what I said was sarcastic.
