Construction Update (1/3/20)

Off-peak closures will be scheduled as needed.

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

Customer Impacts

On I-88, off-peak lane closures will be needed to complete pavement repairs. Long term lane closures will also be required near the DeKalb Toll Plaza. Closures will be scheduled on ramps to accommodate construction.


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

Building Green

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.

Work Zone Safety

Construction 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. A 45 mph work zone speed limit will be in effect on I-88 throughout the repair project.  Work zone speed limits will also be in place on ramps and local crossroad bridges.
