Construction Update (6/13/19)

At Ogden Avenue, traffic is shifted on the ramp connecting southbound I-355 to Ogden Avenue for guardrail work. Traffic is scheduled to stay in this configuration into June.

At I-55, traffic is shifted on the ramps connecting southbound I-355 to I-55 and on the ramp connecting northbound I-355 to northbound I-55 for repair work. Traffic is scheduled to stay in this configuration into June.

On Finley Road, traffic is scheduled to be reduced to a single lane in both directions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily through Friday, June 14, for bridge work.

In addition, off-peak closures will be scheduled as needed. Please check the Daily Construction Alert for up-to-date closure information.

Customer Impacts

Whenever possible, the Tollway uses traffic shifts and shoulders to keep as many lanes open during peak hours as were available before construction.

At Hill Avenue and Crescent Boulevard, long-term full closures of the crossroad bridges will be needed. Detours will be posted. Weekend ramp closure and detours will be needed at Maple Avenue and Roosevelt Road.

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.

The project is being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation, DuPage County, Village of Addison, Village of Lombard, Village of Glen Ellyn, Village of Bolingbrook, the Village of Woodridge, and the Village of Lisle as well as local 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. In addition to reducing the cost of this work, reuse of these materials reduces the need for virgin asphalt materials and reduces energy consumption, greenhouse gases and the volume of material that would otherwise be sent to landfills.

Work Zone Safety

The Illinois Tollway is committed to ensuring that the Veterans Memorial Tollway (I-355) remains safe for both drivers and workers during construction, which is part of the agency’s overall commitment to roadway safety.

Variable work zone speed limits from 45 to 55 mph will be in effect in areas with construction on I-355.
