The Chicago Skyway may be in for a speedy improvement if the Spanish-Australian consortium that's holding a 99-year lease on the roadway has its way.
Drivers who save time and money by using open-road tolling on the Illinois Tollway might enjoy the same benefits on the Skyway as the Chicago Skyway Concession Co. lays the groundwork for the change.
The company is asking the Illinois General Assembly to authorize camera enforcement and administrative adjudication fo Skyway toll violators.
