Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn last week announced the formation of an advisory council to help with the planning and building of the Elgin-O’Hare West Bypass to expand access to O’Hare International Airport.

Quinn said in a statement that the council will serve as a sounding board for state transportation officials as they explore potential financial structures and funding sources for the $3.6 billion project. The group also is charged with exploring job growth, freight movement, transit features, workforce diversity, bike and pedestrian enhancements, and green technologies as they relate to the project.
