Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88)
Roadway Resurfacing and Bridge Repairs
The Illinois Tollway is repairing 10 miles of the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) between Illinois Route 56 in Sugar Grove and Illinois Route 59 in Naperville, to provide a smoother riding surface for the traveling public.
Between Illinois Route 251 and Illinois Route 56 work is scheduled to complete a resurfacing project, which begin in 2018. Between Illinois Route 59 and York Road lighting work is also scheduled for completion.
In addition, repairs are scheduled to ramps at Orchard Road and Illinois Route 56 and local road improvements on South First Street in DeKalb. All work is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
Construction Update (6/13/19)
On I-88, mainline and ramp shoulder closures are scheduled during off-peak hours to complete electrical work, as well as roadway lighting, signage and fence work.
Please check the Daily Construction Alert for up-to-date closure information.
Pavement resurfacing 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 Illinois Tollway is committed to "Building Green" and minimizing the environmental impact of construction by reducing, recycling, and reusing materials. Reusing materials reduces the volume of material that otherwise would be sent to landfills.
