Construction Update (6/13/19)

Mainline Work
Traffic in both directions between Half Day Road and the Edens Spur is reduced to four lanes and shifted to the right. Westbound traffic began shifting to the left during the week of June 10. All shifts are scheduled to be in place by the end of June, with traffic anticipated to remain in this configuration into fall.

Ramp Work
Overnight Saturday, June 15 into Sunday, June 16, the ramp connecting westbound I-94 to Deerfield Road will close for pavement repairs. A detour will be posted directing traffic west to exit at Half Day Road and travel south on North Milwaukee Road to access Deerfield Road.

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. 

Weekend ramp closures will be needed at the Deerfield Road and Lake Forest Road interchanges. Detours will be posted. Only one ramp at a time will be closed.

Purpose

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.
