Illinois' Northwest Tollway is officially getting a new name. The 79-mile stretch of I-90 between Chicago and Rockford will now be called the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway. The renaming was pushed by lawmakers earlier this year and was approved yesterday by tollway officials. Jane Addams gained international recognition for her work helping immigrants adjust and survive in Chicago's slums through her hull house. Addams died in 1935 in Chicago.
