Construction Update (4/3/20)

On the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90), eastbound shoulder closures are scheduled to begin the week of March 30 and last through the fall for an Illinois Department of Transportation project on I-39/U.S. Route 20. In addition, off-peak closures are scheduled on the ramp carrying eastbound I-90 to U.S. Route 20/I-39 for advance work to prepare for a long-term closure. Once advance work is complete, a long-term lane reduction on the ramp is scheduled. More information is available on the Illinois Department of Transportation website.

Customer Impacts

Traffic shift and lane reductions will be necessary to provide a work zone and safely accommodate traffic.

In addition, full closures of the Elevator Road and Rote Road bridges will be required this fall to complete the work because the bridge structures are not wide enough to safely maintain traffic and provide a work zone. Detours will be posted.

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

Purpose

Pavement and bridge repairs will provide customers a smoother surface, improving the overall 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, Winnebago County, local communities, as well as local fire and police departments.

Sustainability

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. Visit the Tollway’s Work Zone Safety page.
