How Dangerous is I-70? Just Yesterday, Three Big Rig Crashes Before Noon Where People Died


Breaking news to begin the workweek: a domino effect of big rig crashes on a single stretch of Illinois highway. Bright and early Monday morning, Illinois State Police reported three separate crashes, all involving commercial trucks, along Interstate 70 near Highland, Illinois.

It’s well known that Interstate 70 is one of main big rig roads in this country, rivaling I -80/94 through Northwest Indiana just south of Chicago: I-70 carries a huge amount of truck traffic through Illinois and Indiana, and beyond.

Last year, Missouri was pondering creating 200 miles of I-70 as “truck only” traffic, moving the big rigs into separate lanes, as well as giving them their own interchanges and bridges.

Perhaps it's time for Illinois and Indiana to consider adopting a similar plan.
