    A major roadway in Springfield might be expanding. It's good news for businesses on the west side. IDOT wants to widen Wabash Avenue from 3 to 5 lanes.
    This rural area has seen a lot of growth over the years. Karen Burns owns "House to a Home." She says she often has trouble getting to and from work, and thinks the changes will help.
    The road would be widened from West Koke Mills to Moffat St. The $22 million project would take 5-years to complete.
    IDOT wants to hear what you think of the plan. It's holding a public meeting next Monday. Reps will be on hand to discuss the project.
