Exchange Club honors police officer, firefighter Police Officer Nick Higens and Firefighter/ Paramedic Ryan Klavohn honored By Laura Katauskas Bugle Staff @BugleNewspapers sweditor@buglenewspapers.com

Honoring those who protect and serve, the Bolingbrook Exchange Club recently named local heroes for their commitment to the community. Police Officer Nick Higens, Police Officer of the Year and Firefighter/Paramedic Ryan Klavohn, Firefighter of the Year, were awarded for their service at the annual awards event sponsored by the club to honor the community’s first responders. The Exchange Club recognizes the Bolingbrook police officer and Bolingbrook firefighter who have demonstrated exceptional achievement and shown an genu-

ine commitment to their profession, their agency and the public they serve. Club organizers extended their thanks in appreciation of the dedication and service of the pair who were honored. Exchange Club of Bolingbrook, according to their website, was founded on the idea of helping out those in need. Since the organization was established, they have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest. The Club is made up entirely of volunteers who advocate for those who need help.

Revamping village ramp The tunnel, built in the 70s, under the Bolingbrook Village Hall will be undergoing renovation. A problem with accessibility for some years, the tunnel will undergo a renovation to include an ADA ramp and sidewalk replacement to avoid the stairs. The village board recently approved the bid, well under budget, of $65,000 for the project; the village had budgeted the project at $120,000.

Holiday Inn to break ground this spring New development will consist of a four-story Holiday Inn Express hotel By Laura Katauskas Bugle Staff @BugleNewspapers sweditor@buglenewspapers.com

Working to transform a uniquesized lot to make way for new development, Holiday Inn will soon break ground on Romeoville’s newest hotel. The 2.35 acre site along Normantown Road, off of Interstate 55, will sit between Creme de la Creme preschool and the Bowlero bowling area. The new development will consist of a four-story Holiday Inn Express hotel with 96 guest rooms, an indoor pool, meeting rooms, fitness center, business center, breakfast/lounge space and an outdoor patio space. Mayor John Noak said there is a great demand for hotel space and that the new addition will most likely be the nicest product of its kind in that area, bringing with it other benefits and the possibility of attracting more development including restaurants to the area. “Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors come to Romeoville,” said Noak. “Whether it be for graduations or campus visits, sporting tournaments, or work related purposes, these people need places to stay. This new Holiday Inn will give them another option in Romeoville. Hotels are a great addition to the community

as it helps market other sites for development such as restaurants and entertainment.” Not previously designed for hotel space, the configuration of the lot has caused a few obstacles in construction. “Because of where the roads and the lots are located, we’ve had to work with public works to squeeze in utilities; they are all around this building and cause a lot of things to ripple through this project,” said Community Development Director Steve Rockwell. Those unique barriers were met with variances to village code and waiving some requirements to allow for the construction of the building. Rockwell said the developer has accommodated all of the village’s requests to make this project work. Issues such as tree replacement,

which is normally required but undoable because of the area, will be balanced out by increased landscaping and masonry work. Developers and Noak also assured that there will be enough distance from the nearby preschool as to not interfere with their pick-up and drop off schedule for students. Signage will be taller than average height, but is needed due to its close proximity to I-55. “We didn’t have a problem with that; we want everyone to be excited to see it and find it,” said Rockwell. “We’ve been asked, why so many variances but it is because it’s a small lot and the developer has complied with every one of our requests.” The developer is expected to break ground in May and to be complete in summer 2019.

Illinois is the heart of the U.S. Interstate system Illinois has the third highest total of Interstate routes and mileage BY SHANE NICHOLSON OF THE ROCK RIVER TIMES Its neighbor to the east may claim “The Crossroads of America” title, but by nearly any measure, Illinois is the heart of the U.S. Interstate system. Illinois has the third highest total of Interstate routes and mileage. Only New York and California have more I-designated roadways, with 7- and 25-million more residents, respectively. Only Texas and California routes cover more mileage, though those states are 5- and 3-times larger by territory. And the importance of the routes — many of which were designed to pass through or near Chicago, with its access to the global economy — further spell out the importance of Illinois as a hub of trans-U.S. travel. The two longest treks of the Interstate system, I-90 and I-80, pass through Illinois on their coast-to-coast journeys. And two key connections to the Gulf States, I-55 and I-65, reach their nadir in the Chicago area. Add in I-57, I-64, I-70 and I-94 and an Illinois driver can reach almost every population center in the nation by navigating one interchange. “Illinois is at the heart of the country’s interstate highway system,” the Illinois Department of Transportation boasts. That was not without intent: When the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways was authorized

in 1956, Illinois was the fourth mostpopulous state in the nation (Texas and Florida leaped over Illinois in the rankings during the second-half of the 20th century). Illinois was a key part of the economic structure of the country: Its endless fields a critical part of the food supply; its inland port a means for the Midwest industrial centers to reach the outside world; its trainyards the center by which the entire U.S. rail system operated around. It was natural, then, that the original Interstate plan released in 1955 saw key arteries originate and pass through Illinois, including I-55, I-57, I-64, I-70, I-74, I-80, I-90 and I-94. Illinois was cementing its place as the heart of the nation’s roads. As the Interstate system began to take shape, Illinois’ road budget began its long climb to the present-day $14.1 billion figure. Maintenance costs ballooned from $59.6 million to $128.1 million during the 1950s. A state commission recommended the formation of IDOT, bringing the transportation system, including the interstates, under a single office in Springfield. When IDOT formed in 1972, only I-64 remained incomplete from the U.S. government’s original Interstate plan, and I-72, then spanning from Champaign to Springfield, had been added to the state’s growing highway system. Throughout this rapid transition of the Illinois’s highway system, the bane of existence for commuters in and around the Chicago area came into existence: the Illinois Tollway. As the state struggled to complete modern highways during World War II, the first tollway commission was established, becoming the Illinois State Toll Highway Commission in 1953. The initial three toll roads, completed by 1958 – the Jane Addams, Tri-State and East-West Tollways – all were eventually rolled into the Interstate system as the nationwide spiderweb of superhighways began to take shape. Today, the re-christened Toll Authority has added I-355 and

state Route 390 among the ranks of its administered roads. By the early 1990s, the majority of the modern Illinois Interstate system was complete. As the USDOT planned supplementary highways in the 1960s and 1970s to fill in gaps between anchor roads of the original 1956 decree, Illinois laid down pavement over its vast farmlands. I-24 was completed in the south of the state, and the state’s portion of I-64 was completed in 1974. State Route 5, the original moniker of the East-West Tollway, saw a re-designation to I-88 in 1987 as Illinois sought to raise the speed limit on the route connecting Chicago to the Quad Cities. With that, I-39 saw its first segment replace the existing U.S. 51 from U.S. 20 outside Rockford to Rochelle. While IDOT had requested I-39 to stretch from the Wisconsin border to Marion County, the length of the proposed highway was shortened through a number of revisions, with the final route ending at Bloomington. U.S. 51 was upgraded through to Decatur as part of the overhaul. Since the completion of I-39 in 1992, Illinois has seen only one new Interstate: the 9/10ths of a mile I-41 in Lake County. That roadway came about as a construct of the Wisconsin DOT re-purposing U.S. 41, from the north suburbs of Chicago to Green Bay, into an Interstate of its own. Its brief stint in Illinois sees it paired with I-94 as it crosses the state line. All told, 24 routes — 13 primary and 11 secondary — compose the modern Illinois Interstate, covering some 2,500 miles. And while Indiana may continue to lay claim to that “crossroads” crown, as Illinois celebrates 200 years — with nearly 1,000 more miles of blue-and-red-signed roadways than its eastern neighbor — its residents should know that it is still the true heart of America’s fascination with the highway.

BILLING Bolingbrook’s Gabby Smith is the 2018 Voyager Media Girls Basketball Player of the Year BY MARK GREGORY Sports Editor @Hear_The_Beard mark@buglenewspapers.com

When Gabby Smith stepped on the floor for her first season of basketball for the Raiders, she knew her class could be the one to get the Bolingbrook girls basketball program back on track. As her senior season wound down – she knew they had done just that. “I wanted to be the best leader I could for my team and help us get as far as we could,” she said. “I had a really good season and we didn’t make it as far as we wanted to, but I am glad we won the sectional. We have a lot of momentum for next year.” On the season, Smith averaged 19 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists per game, leading the Raiders to their first sectional title since Chris Smith took over as head coach. “She grew up so much this year. She matured as a player,” Bolingbrook coach Chris Smith said. “She adoped to the role of putting the team on her back and going after it. That desire, that heart, that was her big difference. She took it personally. That is what seperated her from everyone else this year.” For her efforts, Gabby Smith is the 2018 Voyager Media Player of the Year.

“Bolingbrook is known for girls basketball and we wanted to get it back there,” she said. Smith was named to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Class 3A/4A All State first team. She will continue her career next season at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. “It is the perfect fit for me,” she said. “When I visited, I loved the coaches and the school and when I visited there, I loved the team.” The rest of the first team is:

BUSINESS + REAL ESTATE DAVE SAYS

Make your own layoff insurance DEAR DAVE, Some of the people I work with have been buying into a new kind of supplemental insurance that protects against layoffs. It costs about $30 a month per person, and the full payout if you’re laid off is $9,000. It seems to me you would have to be paying in for a long time to see that kind of return, so I wanted to see how you feel about this kind of thing. STEVE DEAR STEVE, Anytime insurance is there for something you could cover yourself, it’s a good idea to stop and remember that every insurance company is still a business. They must cover all the costs of operation, plus make a profit. Believe me, that takes a lot of money. Statistically speaking, if lots of people cashed in on a policy like this an insurance company would go out of business. We’re talking about only $30 a month to cover $9,000. That alone tells you not many people cash in. It’s gimmick insurance. On average, you’re losing money when you buy insurance of any kind. Again, on average, over the scope of your lifetime you’d be better off simply saving money and self-insuring against things like this. The only things I recommend buying insurance for are things you can’t afford to cover personally. But you can afford to cover a layoff by saving an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. If I’m in your shoes, Steve, I’m not buying that stuff. —DAVE
