I-355 extension fails to push development into the fast lane
(MCT) — In his newly built medical office in the southwest suburbs, Dr. Nagui Hanna hears busy expressway traffic as it rumbles only a few hundred feet away. But from his window he sees acres of overgrown weeds and a maze of empty parking spaces where he had hoped to see cars and customers.
A Target and Home Depot were supposed to anchor a new Lockport Square retail center planned along the Interstate Highway 355 south extension. Thousands of commuters pass the site each day, but the development is mostly abandoned except for Hanna's Lockport Express Medical and roads built in anticipation of stores that never came.
