CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that lane closures will take place on northbound Interstate 57 north of Wilmington-Peotone Road, in Peotone, beginning, weather permitting, Monday, May 2.

The closures are necessary for bridge repairs and bearing replacement on the bridge that carries Interstate 57 over an abandoned railroad. The bridge is located on I-57 north of Wilmington-Peotone Road.

In order to complete the work, northbound Interstate 57 will be reduced to one lane. Lane width reductions will take place on northbound I-57 and the ramp from Wilmington-Peotone Road to northbound I-57.  Wide loads should find an alternate route.

The overall improvements will eliminate a bump at the bridge and provide a safer, smoother surface. The project is expected to be completed in Summer 2016.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Indiana Department of Transportation   INDOT Launches $45 Million "Restore 94" Effort

GARY, Ind. (April 28, 2016) – Today INDOT Commissioner Brandye Hendrickson announced the Restore I-94 initiative, which invests more than $45 million to modernize I-94 between the Illinois state line and the Michigan state line during 2016. Projects will include pavement upgrades, bridge rehabilitation, drainage improvements, and traffic and safety enhancements.

“High quality transportation infrastructure is one of the most important assets our State can leverage to grow our economy, create jobs, and attract and retain talent,” INDOT Commissioner Brandye Hendrickson said. “INDOT’s investment to modernize I-94 demonstrates a strong commitment by the State to maintain Northwest Indiana’s transportation network to help the region excel in the 21st century economy.”

I-94 traffic volumes are among the highest in the country with a substantial concentration of heavy truck traffic. It is because of the extremely high volume and the resulting wear-and-tear that I-94 needs more modernization and preventive maintenance.

Construction will require periodic lane closures and drivers may experience delays as work progresses through Fall 2016. However, INDOT is coordinating all projects across the approximately 45-mile corridor to minimize the impact to drivers as much as possible.

Steps INDOT Is Taking to Improve Safety/Mobility

  • Implementation of Smart Work Zones, which feature traffic sensors that trigger message boards when slowed or stopped traffic develops. This warns drivers to be alert and has been proven to reduce accidents in work zones. In addition, drivers can seek alternate routes before encountering stopped traffic.
  • Nighttime work will be a part of as many projects as possible to limit the impact to drivers.
  • Multiple work zones in close proximity will be combined to create one concurrent work zone to cut down on back-ups.

What Can Drivers Do To Limit Impact

  • Plan ahead for delays on I-94 through Fall 2016, especially during peak hours, weekends and holidays.
  • When approaching lane closures, begin to merge when you see the first signage. This prevents back-ups from many drivers who wait until the last moment to get over. This is often a major factor in traffic congestion at work zones.

Restore I-94 is a part of the #INDOTDrivesIndiana initiative, an enhanced public awareness campaign to keep Hoosiers up to date on the more than 770 road and bridge projects scheduled to begin across Indiana during 2016. To view INDOT’s 2016 active construction map, visit www.in.gov/indot/div/construction/.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.

Illinois Tollway logo   Local Road Closures, Shifts Scheduled to Begin This Week as Part of the Illinois Route 390 Tollway Project

Detours will be posted for noisewall, frontage road work

A portion of Park Boulevard in Itasca will be closed and a detour posted this week to allow for construction of a noisewall as part of the Illinois Route 390 Tollway Project. Closures are also scheduled in May for a portion of Edgewood Avenue in Wood Dale.

In 2016, the Illinois Tollway will continue construction of Illinois Route 390, extending the roadway east to Illinois Route 83, including construction of bridges and frontage roads to accommodate local traffic. In addition, construction of a new eastbound frontage road is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2016. Completion of the new Tollway between Rohlwing Road and Illinois Route 83 is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2017.

Weather permitting, on Friday, April 29, Park Boulevard between Willow Street and West Prairie Court will close from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to allow for construction of a noisewall. A detour will be posted directing traffic to use Willow Street, Bryn Mawr Avenue and Arlington Heights Road to access Thorndale Avenue. A similar closure with detour will be scheduled for Monday, May 2, if work is not completed.
 

In addition, during the week of May 2, traffic in both directions on Illinois Route 83 between Mark Street and Industrial Drive is scheduled to shift into the southbound lanes, to allow for the reconstruction of the northbound lanes of Illinois Route 83 and installation of storm sewers and water mains. During this time, no left-turns will be allowed from northbound and southbound Illinois Route 83 to Bryn Mawr Avenue. Detours will be posted. Traffic is scheduled to remain in this configuration into the fall.

During the week of May 9, Edgewood Avenue at the frontage road south of Thorndale Avenue is scheduled to close for earth work, pavement work and roadway drainage improvements. A detour will be posted directing traffic to use Lively Boulevard, Richert Road, Central Avenue and Belnoris Drive. The closure is expected to be in place for about two weeks.

The Tollway is coordinating work with the Illinois Department of Transportation, Village of Itasca, City of Wood Dale and DuPage County, as well as local townships, villages and police and fire departments.

Construction information about the Illinois Route 390 Project is available in the “Projects by Roadway” section in the Construction/Planning section on the Tollway’s website at www.illinoistollway.com.

The public can follow the progress of the work on the Illinois Route 390 Project via camera images offering bird’s-eye-views on the Illinois Tollway’s website www.illinoistollway.com. Views of ongoing work are updated every 15 minutes and available online.

Illinois Department of Transportation logo   Work to Begin at I-39 Interchange with US-20

Dixon, IL - The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that weather permitting, construction work at the I-39 interchange with US-20 at the south edge of Rockford will begin on Monday, May 2, 2016. Martin & Company is starting the $390,740 contract to make repairs to two bridges over Linden Road.

The repairs include removing the existing overlay on the structures, making concrete repairs to the bridge deck, replacing expansion joints and resurfacing the bridges. The two ramps must be closed during the construction work because they are too narrow to make the improvements while still allowing traffic to move past the work operations.

The first bridge to be repaired is the structure carrying Northbound I-39 over Linden Road to go eastbound on US-20. Northbound I-39 traffic will be detoured west on US-20 to the IL 251 interchange where they can turn to go back east on US-20. During this four week closure, the ramp from westbound US-20 to Alpine Road will also be closed. This is necessary to prevent traffic backups on the ramp from causing accidents and congestion on westbound US-20.

Following completion of the improvements to the northbound I-39 bridge, work will then begin on the ramp from eastbound US-20 to southbound I-39. During this four week closure, eastbound to southbound I-39 traffic will be detoured east to the Harrison Avenue interchange where they can turn to go back west on US-20 to the westbound to southbound ramp to I-39. All ramps are scheduled to be completed by the end of June.
Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.

Minnesota Department of Transportation logo   Reconstruction Begins Monday, April 25 on County Road E2 Bridge Over I-35W in Arden Hills, New Brighton

Heads up! You might encounter traffic delays Monday, April 25 as we begin construction of a new Ramsey County Road E2 bridge across Interstate 35W in Arden Hills and New Brighton. 

We’ll close the County Road E2 bridge around 9 a.m. Monday, April 25. The bridge will remain closed until mid-August. While the bridge is closed, you will need to use the posted detour on County Road D to reach your destination.

Removal of the bridge across I-35W is currently scheduled for the weekend of April 30 and May 1. I-35W will close from 10 p.m. Friday, April 29 through 5 a.m. Monday, April 2 for demolition of the existing bridge. Although I-35W will close at County Road E2, traffic will be routed up and down the County Road E2 ramps. You will not be able to turn onto County Road E2 in either direction or travel from County Road E2 onto I-35W.

And once the bridge is demolished, the ramps between northbound I-35W and County Road E2 on the east side of the interstate will close and be detoured until mid-June.

County Road E2 will remain closed and detoured throughout the project. There will be occasional lane closures and full closures of the interstate during the work. During the closures, you’ll have to follow a signed detour to reach your destination.

Illinois Tollway logo   Bridge Beam Placement is Scheduled to Begin This Week on the New Eastbound I-290 Flyover Ramp

 Ramp construction is part of the I-290 Interchange Project on the new Illinois Route 390 Tollway

 Bridge beam placement is scheduled to begin this week for construction of the new flyover ramp bridge connecting eastbound I-290 to eastbound Illinois Route 390 as part of the I-290 Interchange Project. Additional lane and ramp closures with detours will be scheduled overnight as needed into May.

Electronic message signs as well as construction and detour signage will be put in place to alert drivers of the closures and detour.

As part of the Illinois Tollway’s I-290 Interchange Project, the Illinois Department of Transportation is building a new flyover ramp bridge scheduled to be complete in 2017. When completed, the three-level, multi-span structure will pass over both I-290 and Illinois Route 390 and create a new free flow movement.

Weather permitting, at 11 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, one westbound lane on Illinois Route 390 between Prospect Avenue and Rohlwing Road is scheduled to close, with a full closure of all westbound lanes scheduled from midnight to 8 a.m. on Sunday, April 24, for bridge beam placement.

A detour will be posted directing traffic north on Prospect Avenue, west onto Devon Avenue, south onto Rohlwing Road and then onto the westbound frontage road before reentering Illinois Route 390.

In addition, while the roadway closures are in place, the ramp carrying traffic from westbound Illinois Route 390 to eastbound I-290 will also close with a posted detour from midnight to 8 a.m. on Sunday, April 24. Ramp traffic will be directed along the same detour route to Meacham Road on to eastbound Illinois Route 390 at Meacham Road and then east on to Illinois Route 390 to eastbound I-290.

Roadway and ramp closures with posted detours will occur as needed through May for bridge beam installation.
