I-88/Illinois Route 47 Interchange
Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88)
Illinois Route 47 Interchange Project
The Illinois Tollway is rebuilding the Illinois Route 47 Interchange on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) to provide a new, full-access interchange. The $25 million interchange project will be constructed in partnership with the Village of Sugar Grove, Kane County and the Illinois Department of Transportation. The project will complete an existing partial interchange that currently only provides access to and from the west.
Work on the project is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year.
Construction Update (6/13/19)
Shoulder closures in both directions between Blackberry Creek and Illinois Route 47 are in place. Temporary, off-peak lane closures will be scheduled as needed. Please check the Daily Construction Alert for up-to-date closure information.
In addition, traffic on the ramps carrying Illinois Route 47 to westbound I-88 and eastbound I-88 to Illinois Route 47 is shifted. Traffic is expected to remain in this configuration through summer.
Illinois Route 47
Between Finley Road and Seavey Road, traffic is reduced to a single lane in both directions. Traffic is scheduled to remain in this configuration for the duration of the project.
The Illinois Route 47 Interchange Project will create opportunity for continued economic development along Illinois Route 47 and will open up access between the Tollway and Illinois Route 47, a regional north-south transportation route extending from Wisconsin into Central Illinois. Currently, existing ramps only provide access for drivers traveling to and from the west. Approximately 3,000 vehicles use this interchange daily.
The Illinois Route 47 Interchange will be an all-electronic interchange with cashless toll plazas for vehicles with I-PASS located on the ramps carrying traffic to and from the east.
Cars with I-PASS will pay 55 cents. Trucks tolls will range from $1.95 to $5.00 during daytime hours, with overnight discounts offered. Those without I-PASS can pay their tolls online at the cash rate within the seven-day grace period. Grace period toll payments are double the I-PASS rates.
Work Zone Safety
The Illinois Tollway is committed to ensuring that the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) and Illinois Route 47 remain safe for both drivers and workers during construction, which is part of the agency’s overall commitment to roadway safety.
A 45 mph work zone speed limit is in effect on Illinois Route 47. A 45 mph work zone speed limit will be in effect on I-88 throughout the repair project.
