This comment is in regard to the article “RTA hears plenty from Oak Park on Blue Line growth.” I need to clarify my statement: The Ike cap is not connected or dependent on the potential need to widen the expressway for traffic congestion relief. The reference to the Blue Line extension is incorrect.

Also the last statement in the article should read “work is wrapping up on a ‘scope of work’ plan for further studying the need and aspects of capping the Ike, which is to be presented to IDOT within the next month or two.”
