Heads up if you’re traveling through Illinois

Construction causes lane shifts

This week the Illinois Tollway (IT) is shifting traffic on the eastern side of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway between the Elgin Toll Plaza and Tri-State Tollway to prepare a work zone for the second phase of the Interstate 90 Rebuilding and Widening Project.

The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway is a section of I-90 and the Tri-State Tollway is a section of I-294.

The traffic shifts will last until late March and IT will keep three lanes of traffic open in both directions of the 25-mile segment of highway. The organization said most traffic would be shifted to the left, with the working being done during off-peak and overnight hours.
