Edens Spur Tollway Project Selected for 2022 ACEC National Award
The Illinois Tollway Edens Spur Tollway (I-94) Project will be recognized nationally by the American Council of Engineering Companies for exemplary engineering achievement in 2022.
The Edens Spur Project will receive a Special Recognition Award from ACEC National. The project was eligible for the national award after receiving a 2022 Honor Award from ACEC Illinois.
The Illinois Tollway completed reconstructing the Edens Spur from Pfingsten Road to the Edens Expressway in November 2020. The $109.1 million project removed and replaced all existing mainline asphalt pavement and included replacing mainline bridges. Additional work included replacing the Pfingsten Road Bridge, repairing the Waukegan Road Bridge over the Edens Spur, constructing the barrier-separated median with stormwater improvements and upgrading ITS and roadway lighting.
