Congestion: It's Enough to Drive You to the Drink

Indiana is just chock full of transportation-related ideas these days. Yesterday came news of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels taking control of the Illiana Expressway project. Today comes news that Gary's Mayor Rudy Clay wants to establish a hovercraft transit link between Gary and Navy Pier.

The purpose of the hovercraft link is to provide commuters an alternative to the Borman Expressway and other crowded routes into downtown Chicago. I thought the South Shore Line was that alternative, but if the hovercraft service gets off the ground--or rather water--it might point the way to utilizing Lake Michigan as a commuter corridor.

There are many ways to move beyond congestion.
