In this era of down-sizing Big Government and cutting spending, maybe South side County Board Supervisor Pat Jursik could make the expensive I-794 extension she wants a toll or user fee experiment?
"That corridor is extremely important in the South Shore communities," Jursik said. "That is the corridor that moves folks through our communities."
But the project has an estimated price tag of $207 million — a major hurdle and concern of the DOT.
"The largest concern (the DOT) is going to have is with regard to finding the funding to do it," Jursik said.
