  • The Frank Borman Expressway is an east–west freeway in the northwest part of the U.S. state of Indiana, named after astronaut and former Eastern Airlines CEO Frank Borman. The expressway consists of parts of Interstate 80 (I-80), I-94, and U.S. Highway 6 (US 6), as well as a short section of US 41. The designation begins from the Illinois state line east to the Lake–Porter county line, just east of the junction with the Indiana Toll Road. The expressway has been identified in federal transportation legislation as part of High Priority Corridor 18, Segment 27, making current and future construction projects on I-94 eligible for federal funding in association with extending Interstate 69 to the Texas–Mexico border. The Borman Expressway is a major truck thoroughfare, providing a free alternative to the Indiana Toll Road and Chicago Skyway to the north. Originally constructed in segments starting in the 1950s, with its Illinois counterpart, the Kingery Expressway, reconstruction of the expressway began in 2004. Flooding in 2007 and 2008 caused road closures, but measures are in place to prevent future occurrences.
