The Illiana Corridor Planning Group has released a preliminary recommendation for the proposed route for the Illiana Expressway.

The Route--referred to as "B3" in Illiana Corridor Planning Documents---runs from Indiana's Interstate 65 between Cedar Lake and Lowell to I-55 in Illinois between the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie and Wilmington. 

Illiana corridor documents state route "B3" is the best balance of performance, minimizing 

impacts, financial viability and compatibility with community plans.
