The feds thinking of shrinking Interstate 180 down to two lanes

Posted by wlpo on August 11, 2015

Do you think Interstate 180 is busy enough to need four lanes? There’s talk of reducing it to two.

According to the NewsTribune, Congressman Adam Kinzinger told the Putnam County Board that the lane reduction has been brought up. The Republican says he’s against the change.

Putnam County Board President Duane Calbow wants to look at ways to prevent the change, saying downsizing I-180 would impact the marketability for economic growth.
