The Illiana Corridor is a new 50-mile access controlled highway developed in partnership between the Illinois and Indiana Departments of Transportation. Following extensive environmental studies and public input, federal approval was given to construct a four-lane expressway that connects I-55 in Illinois with I-65 in Indiana. Project next steps include exploring public-private partnership (P3) opportunities, detailed project design, environmental permitting and land acquisition. The project will improve regional mobility and create thousands of short-term and long-term jobs, amounting to over a billion dollars in wages over a 30-year period. It will serve as a major trucking corridor and boost the region’s long-term economic output by $4 billion.
