Stop Rt. 53/120 Extension in Lake County & Promote a More Modern, Sustainable, Efficient and Achievable Alternative Plan
The Illinois Tollway is threatening to ruin our valuable wetlands, intact open spaces and quality of life in Lake County with the stunningly unaffordable Rt. 53/120 tollway extension. This is outdated 1950’s planning and a massive, urban-sprawl inducing plan which will eventually increase our traffic congestion. If not stopped, it would devastate property values, create increased health hazards and significantly compromise the quality of life for the people and businesses in the corridor.
We advocate for a more forward-thinking, efficient and cost effective plan that incentivizes cars off the road, preserves open spaces, increases access to public transit, modernizes our system and will position Lake County to be competitive in a 21st century economy.
