You Say Greenway I Say Runway

green as grass
There is an old saying in Lake County ...
Nobody Expects the Route 53 Extension
The Lake County Board endorsed a proposal to transform the Route 53 Extension -- 1,100 acres of land — into a greenway:
Supporters want the land to be transferred from the Illinois Department of Transportation to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources so it can be protected in perpetuity as a state park, trail or other open space.
Lake County Board might endorse using Route 53 right of way as greenway
One Waukegan Airport head honcho spoke to your LakeCountyEye: "And they say the Route 53 Extension will be a State Park -- not an airport runway? Tell me more."
