The concept of an Illiana Expressway took root in the late 1990s as a local/regional movement to create a new corridor for the mobility of freight and commercial traffic. This grass roots effort culminated in June 2010 with an agreement between Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and the Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels when they signed a Memorandum of Understanding, based on legislation in both states that establishes a two-state partnership for planning a potential new transportation linkage serving northwest Indiana, northeastern Illinois, and regional travel which is consistent with regional planning efforts in both states. As stated above, tremendous benefits for both Indiana and Illinois are gained by an improved transportation system in this area.
