A Road that Almost Wasn't Built

I-355, the North-South Tollway extension, will open on Sunday November 11, 2007, after 15 years of waiting and court cases to protect a dragonfly. It will officially open to traffic on Monday November 12th. The story behind the building of the tollway is long, and dragged out, but over the course of the weekend, I hope to relate it as the road opens.

Here's a Chicago SunTimes story about the new tollway
