Des Plaines Oasis closed Sunday night

It’s the end of the road for the Des Plaines Oasis.

The oasis, which has welcomed travelers since 1959, closed at 8 p.m. on Sunday.

The overhead oasis will be torn-down as part of a master plan to rebuild and widen the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway.  The 7-11 and gas station next to the oasis will remain open.

Removing the oasis will allow a fourth lane to be added in each direction from O’Hare Airport to Elgin.

    Closing so they can build tollways with giant walls so no one can see anything and driving will become a nightmare worse than it already is and so people can be totally under control from day to night and night to day. And so the Global governance can have their way.
