Abstract (Document Summary)

He also complained that the northerly route would compel people from central Indiana to drive through South Bend or Elkhart to use the road, and he predicted that if the road followed the northerly route, it "would very probably remain a toll road indefinitely as its maintenance cost could hardly be justified as a charge against Indiana alone."

Newspaper articles of the day commonly referred to the northern Indiana "east-west" toll road, to distinguish it from a "north- south" Indiana toll road that was being studied by the Toll Road Commission as part of a highway extending from the Great Lakes to Miami. Had it been completed, the latter route would have roughly followed the path of what is now Interstate 65.

The final toll road link, a 16-mile segment in northwest Indiana, was opened in November 1956. Times of Northwest Indiana File Photo; Photo: TollRoadOld5.jpeg
