In 2005, the city of Chicago sold a 99-year lease on the eight-mile Chicago Skyway for $1.83 billion to the Skyway Concession Company, which is jointly owned by the Macquarie Infrastructure Group of Sydney, Australia, and the Cintra Concesiones de Infraestructuras de Transporte of Madrid, Spain. Chicago used the money to pay off debt and fund road projects.
Australia owns one of your biggest landmarks!!!!:D

The aussies and spanish do a pretty good job maintaining the Indiana Toll Road. It's one of the smoother driving surfaces in the midwest.
