Construction Update (8/13/18)

The Bradley Road Bridge is closed through fall. A detour will be posted directing Bradley Road traffic along Rockland Road (Illinois Route 176), St. Mary’s Road and Town Line Road.

Between Russell Road and the Edens Spur, off-peak lane and shoulder closures will be scheduled as needed to complete shoulder work.

On the ramps carrying I-94 traffic to westbound Grand Avenue, I-94 traffic to Buckley Road and Buckley Road to westbound I-94 traffic is shifted. Traffic is expected to remain in this configuration into fall.

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

Customer Impacts

Lane closures and traffic shifts will be necessary to provide a work zone and safely accommodate construction. Whenever possible, the Tollway uses traffic shifts and shoulders to keep as many lanes open during peak hours as were available before construction. 

At the Bradley Road Bridge, a detour will be in place for the duration of the project. Work at Atkinson Road Bridge will require a two-month detour. 


These roadway, bridge and ramp repairs are necessary to extend the life of the roadway and bridges and provide safe and convenient travel for Tollway customers. This work is part of the Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.

These projects are being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation, Lake County, Cook County , as well as local municipalities, fire and police departments.

Building Green

The Tollway is committed to "Building Green" and minimizing the environmental impact of construction by reducing, recycling and reusing materials. 

Work Zone Safety

The Illinois Tollway is committed to ensuring that the North Tri-State Tollway (I-94) remains safe for both drivers and workers during construction, which is part of the agency’s overall commitment to roadway safety.

A 55 mph work zone speed limit will be in effect in areas with construction on the Tri-State Tollway.
