I've been driving up there every weekend for the past 8 years. Once you drive into Wisconsin the roads are better quality and in the winter they are plowed better. I just drove up to Wisconsin Dells the roads were in great shape.

Wisconsin doesn't salt or plow (90%) so of course they are better

It is simple to boycott the toll hikes, don't drive the tollway.
Boycotting the tolls would be a problem, mostly for the hundreds of thousands of people who have to use it every day to get to work and back.

We already talked about this in great detail. I was even told I was being selfish by a smug umpa lumpa.

I work in Elk Grove right off Elmhurst road & 72 and we've had alot of land surveyors, noise polution people as well as a ton of Realtors stop by our place in the past year. The plan for that area is to finally extend elgin/ohare and run it along Thorndale rd to actually reach the airport.
They are also going to run a split from Thorndale and Elmhurst road off the new elgin/ohare to I90 which is a few miles north.
They will also be making the Elmhurst road exit a full exchange exit so you will be able to get on going east and west instead of having to go all the way to Arlington heights road to get on going westbound.

Ive seen the maps of the proposed plans and all I know is its going to screw up traffic by work for along time. I think they estimate it will be done by 2018.

You do know that the vast majority of road deterioration is due to heavy vehicles and transition from warm to cold and back to warm temperatures, right?

90 is a joke around 290/94. Especially if there is some kind of event going on. I cant count how many times it has taken over an hour to get from Cumberland to 35th for a Sox game.

Flip side, we left hella early once, and it took 25 minutes.

This is why I live in the same town that I work in


But seriously that shit is gonna suck!!! The 90 construction going west towards Rockford already sucks ass! At times it is easier to just take the streets instead of the highway even though it tacks on an extra 30 minutes for the drive I make out to janesville because at times you'll get stuck in traffic and that delays a person 30 minutes to an hour anyways.

When I went to Galena over the weekend, I was headed down 90 and the Semi's werent paying attention to "trucks use left lane" because the right lane was practically the shoulder.

i'm with whoever was trying to say that chicago drivers suck. i got ran into a fuckin curb by a jerkass driver and smashed up my rims :-(

i don't think more lanes is going to solve that problem.

on another note, i've been a hippie and have been riding my bike to work every day.

Use the brakes next time or don't swerve? Now you're liable instead of the person who moved into your lane.

Reasons why I don't miss living in Chicago... I have a 50 mile one-way drive that takes 40-45 minutes.

Around here, they mention snow in the forecast and everything shuts down.
