Sign petition opposing proposed Circle Interchange flyovers
There's no doubt that the aging Circle Interchange needs to be rebuilt.
Unfortunately, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has proposed to expand the interchange where I-90/94 and I-290 come together so that it can carry more cars and trucks — a strategy that has proven to provide short-term benefits at best while unleashing more driving that fills the additional capacity.
IDOT's plan includes flyover ramps swirling above city streets instead of the current configuration that mostly keeps cars below the city streets.
These ramps will make the West Loop and Greek Town neighborhoods less walkable and less inviting with more noise, grit and visual clutter.
