Construction Update (12/5/23)

Please check the Daily Construction Alert for up-to-date closure information.

Customer Impacts

Lane closures and traffic shifts are necessary to provide a work zone and safely accommodate construction.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to scheduled lane closures, traffic patterns and work zone speed limits.

In addition, full closures of the Townhall Road Bridge will be required this spring to complete the work because the bridge structure is not wide enough to safely maintain traffic and provide a work zone. A detour will be posted.



Repair work will provide customers an improved driving experience and extend the life of the roadway. This work is part of the Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.

The project is being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation, Boone County, McHenry County, Kane County, Winnebago County and local communities, as well as local fire and police departments.


The Tollway is committed to building green and minimizing the environmental impact of construction by reducing, recycling and reusing materials. In addition to reducing the cost of this work, reuse of these materials reduces the need for virgin asphalt materials and reduces energy consumption, greenhouse gases and the volume of material that would otherwise be sent to landfills.

Work Zone Safety

The Illinois Tollway is committed to ensuring that the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) and local roads remain safe for both drivers and workers during construction, which is part of the agency’s overall commitment to roadway safety.

Work zone speed limits are in effect in all construction zones 24/7 and drivers should continue to watch for changing traffic patterns and use caution, especially when workers are present.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to the new traffic patterns.
