ILLINOIS STATE SENATE DISTRICT 31: Bush statement on Tollway Board’s decision to nix Route 53 study
Illinois State Senate District 31 issued the following announcement on July 12.
State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) released the following statement in response to the Illinois Tollway Board’s decision to cut funding for the Route 53 environmental impact study:
“The future of the Route 53 project may be uncertain, but it doesn’t change the fact that Lake County residents need transportation solutions that improve public safety, and provide congestion relief while protecting our environment,” said Bush. “It's time we fixed the existing Route 120. It's a feasible, cost-effective solution that will provide tangible benefits to Lake County commuters. The State of Illinois needs to build on the work of our local mayors and implement the 120 Corridor Capacity Plan, including the grade level separation at 120 and the 83 railroad crossing.”
