The future of transportation will be decided in Chicago and the city’s road network will finally see a completion date.
The city of Chicago announced this morning that it will begin the construction of the new I-94 North expressway in 2019, as well as the $3 billion LIRR corridor from Chicago’s downtown to downtown Dallas.
The expressway will stretch 1.2 miles between the I-270 and I-75 interchange.
“This will be the longest, most thorough, and most extensive expressway system in the world,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said at a press conference today.
The project will bring thousands of new jobs to the Chicago metropolitan area.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2019.
There are two lanes on each side of the I95 corridor.
“The I-95 corridor will serve as the Chicago River’s major artery for a generation,” Emanuel said.
“The new expressway is going to be the biggest, most important transportation investment in the city since the completion of the Red Line.”
In addition to the new expressways, Chicago also announced plans for a new elevated rail system to connect the city to other major cities.
This is a great day for Chicago.
