I remember when I was a kid and they built the Elgin ohare expressway and it did not go to niether. I was excited in recent years to see progress and another phase finished I am such a nerd I drove from the north side if Chicago just to see and drive on 390 from 355 to I think I 88 . I was reading how there is suppose to be a highway going all the way around ohare.

I don't get why it's taking so long!!!! In the fifties we built things quicker.

Does anyone know when the highway around ohare will be done ?

I believe the original schedule was 2022-2026. The Tollway is still trying to reach agreement with the railroad on crossing the Bensenville yard, and the northern link to I-90 depends on airport authority.
