Construction Update (2/8/19)

Between I-88 and Butterfield Road, roadway, shoulder and ramp lane closures are scheduled during off-peak hours to complete striping, signage and guardrail work. Some off-peak lane closures may also be needed for pavement patching and to complete barrier and noise wall repairs.

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.

On I-355, traffic will be shifted to provide room for a work zone. Traffic will intermittently be driving on rough surfaces throughout the duration of construction.

Ramp closure and detours will be needed at U.S. Route 6, 63rd Street/Hobson Road, Maple Avenue, Butterfield Road, Roosevelt Road, North Avenue and Army Trail 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.

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 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.
