Letter: Getting a new bridge from Chicago-loving lawmakers

Comment on this story

Shhhh!! Let's all keep this our little secret! We'll wait for another year, and pass the word in Springfield that Interstate 74 runs "through" Chicago.

Funds will quickly be allocated for the new bridge, and by the time construction is half completed, it will be too late.

Why, we might even push our luck a little further! It's been awhile since we've had a new state. Cook County seems ripe for the offering!
