COLLINSVILLE - The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that four routine maintenance projects in Metro East will be done on condensed schedules over select weekends in the coming weeks to accelerate the repairs and minimize the impact to the traveling public. The projects will require some expressway closures starting on Friday evenings and reopening no later than the following Monday morning.
 The projects are: 
  • Bridge joint replacement at Interstate 55/70 west of Illinois 203.
  •  Pavement patching on eastbound I-55/70 just west of Interstate 255.
  • Bridge painting on I-55/70 under I-255 ramps.

Illinois Department of Transportation logo   Culvert Replacement UpdateIllinois 100 Closed - Jersey County
Collinsville, IL - The Illinois Department of Transportation announces IL 100 will temporarily re-open between Scenic Drive and Schallenberg Lane after morning rush on July 28, 2017.  Due to the recent storm, the Department was unable to replace the second culvert before the weekend; therefore, IL 100 will be closed again at 6 AM on July 31, 2017.  Weather and progress permitting, this repair should be completed and the highway reopened by 6 PM on August 4, 2017.
 
The highway restrictions are necessary to replace the remaining deteriorated culvert that crosses under IL 100 just north of Pere Marquette State Park.  A detour using IL Route 3, IL Route 109 and IL Route 16 will be marked to circumvent the closure during the work period.  Access to Pere Marquette State Park and the Brussels Ferry will remain available by IL 100 through Grafton.  The Illinois Department of Transportation's Day Labor forces will perform the needed repairs.
 
Traffic control devices and directional signage, including electronic message boards, will be deployed to guide motorists safely through the area.  Travelers are advised to consider alternate routes or allow additional time to travel in and around this area.  Regardless, all motorists are urged to be patient, reduce speed and exercise added caution throughout the Metro East region - as traffic patterns and travel times will likely be affected.

Indiana Department of Transportation   INDOT Activates New Traffic Signal System at I-94 and U.S. 20 Interchange Ramp to Increase Safety

New Signal

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will activate a new traffic control system on Tuesday, August 1 at the exit ramp of eastbound I-94 to eastbound U.S. 20 as part of the new interchange modification project. The new system will increase safety as the signals will stop I-94 traffic from entering eastbound U.S. 20 until signals allow for a protected right turn. (Map attached)

The I-94 eastbound exit ramp, Exit 40A, was moved 400 feet to the west, creating a safer 90 degree turn at U.S. 20, and a signal was installed for traffic exiting the ramp. Another traffic signal was installed for eastbound US 20 traffic, just west of the ramp. This interchange modification and added signals will prevent traffic exiting I-94 from unprotected merging on U.S. 20 eastbound, where accidents had occurred in the past.
Additional daily closures will be needed to resurface the remaining ramps at this interchange. Crews will close one of the remaining ramps daily for resurfacing, Thursday, August 3 through Tuesday, August 8. The remaining pavement markings will be done at a later date.

Illinois Tollway logo   Construction Scheduled to Begin Next Week on the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) at the Grand Avenue Interchange in Gurnee

Ramp closures, detour needed to extend mainline barrier wall and improve access to exit ramp

Construction to improve traffic flow and enhance safety on the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) at the Grand Avenue Interchange in Gurnee, is scheduled to begin next week, including work to extend the barrier wall separating the westbound exiting traffic from the I-94 mainline traffic.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to traffic shifts and closures needed throughout construction, including closure of the ramp connecting eastbound Grand Avenue to westbound I-94 with a posted detour scheduled to begin July 17. All work is weather dependent.

The I-94 improvements include extending the barrier wall separating the westbound exiting traffic from the tollway mainline traffic and moving traffic exiting to westbound Grand Avenue to the barrier-separated area. This work will extend the barrier wall already separating the traffic exiting to eastbound Grand Avenue from I-94 mainline traffic.

In addition, construction will also include shoulder work, roadway lighting, drainage and signage improvements, ramp maintenance, pavement marking and landscaping. All work is scheduled to be complete in spring 2018.

Extension of the barrier wall will improve traffic flow by separating exiting traffic to westbound Grand Avenue from mainline I-94 traffic. The decision point for all drivers exiting to Grand Avenue will occur well ahead of both the exit ramp to eastbound Grand Avenue and the exit ramp to westbound Grand Avenue, and the new lane will provide additional space for exiting traffic to queue on the ramp side of the barrier wall if needed.

To accommodate the construction work zone, beginning the week of July 17 and continuing through November, the ramp carrying traffic from eastbound Grand Avenue to westbound I-94 will close and a detour will be posted directing traffic to continue east on Grand Avenue to Milwaukee Avenue and then onto I-94 westbound.

During work to complete all the improvements and maintenance work, long-term lane closures and traffic shifts will be needed on I-94, as well as lane reductions on the ramp carrying westbound I-94 traffic to eastbound Grand Avenue.



 Improvements on the Tri-State Tollway and Grand Avenue Interchange are necessary to provide safe and convenient travel for Tollway customers. The work is funded by the Illinois Tollway’s 15-year, capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.

Illinois Tollway logo   Detours Rescheduled to July 21 for Farnsworth Avenue Ramps on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) in Aurora

Access restricted for two ramp movements through August as part of the Farnsworth Avenue Interchange Project

Detours at the Farnsworth Avenue Interchange on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) have been rescheduled to begin on Friday, July 21. Access to and from the interchange will be reduced through August to accommodate roadway and bridge pavement reconstruction as work continues to rebuild the interchange in Aurora.

Weather permitting, detours will be put in place for traffic traveling from eastbound I-88 to northbound Farnsworth Avenue and traffic traveling from northbound Farnsworth Avenue to westbound I-88. Both traffic movements currently require left turns through the work zone where pavement work is underway, so access will be temporarily restricted for construction. All other interchange ramp access will remain open to drivers.

Electronic message signs and detour signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to dates and times for the scheduled detours. The closures are necessary to provide a work zone that safely accommodates construction. All work is weather dependent.

A detour will be put in place for eastbound I-88 traffic exiting to northbound Farnsworth Avenue, directing drivers southbound on Farnsworth Avenue to a detour route via Diehl Road, Eola Road and Butterfield Road to reach northbound Farnsworth Avenue. In addition, Northbound Farnsworth Avenue traffic traveling to westbound I-88 will be directed northbound on Farnsworth Avenue to a detour route via Butterfield Road, Eola Road and Bilter Road to enter westbound I-88. The detours are scheduled to remain in place through August.

During the closures and detours, two lanes will remain open on Farnsworth Avenue in both directions. An additional southbound lane at the ramps will open to serve the remaining ramp traffic.

The ramp detours are being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation, the City of Aurora, Aurora Township, DuPage and Kane Counties, local fire and police departments.

Minnesota Department of Transportation logo   Final Construction Season Begins at St. Croix Crossing

Premier infrastructure project to open to traffic in late summer

The final summer construction season on the St. Croix Crossing bridge project has begun and crews will perform a variety of finishing details throughout the summer to prepare for traffic later this year.

Construction crews have been working at the project site throughout the winter and early spring, but with warmer temperatures and more predictable weather, contractors are now able to schedule more work.

“We were able to fully connect all the bridge spans with closure pours during the winter months and began work on things like electrical and drainage systems,” said Terry Zoller, project engineer for the Minnesota Department of Transportation. “With better weather, we should be able to move more quickly to finish this iconic project.”

May

During May, crews began work to finish the driving and walking surfaces of the bridge and to chip seal the bridge deck. In this process, an epoxy resin is poured and evenly spread onto the driving surface of the bridge. Small, aggregate gravel is then broadcast on top of it. The gravel sticks to the epoxy, creating a water-tight, non-slip driving surface that is smooth and more durable. Two layers of the epoxy and aggregate will be completed to create a longer-lasting driving surface that will stand up better to Midwest weather extremes. Chip sealing will continue through early June, according to Zoller.

Professional painting crews also began the long process of painting the bridge with a tan color reflective of the bluffs on the east bank of the St. Croix River. The paint is formulated specifically for the bridge, to better withstand temperature and weather extremes without peeling or cracking. Workers will apply paint to the majority of the bridge structure by roller brush to avoid overspray issues and to directly apply a more even coat of paint on all surfaces. Crews will spray the approach bridges because they can more easily access the surfaces to paint. Zoller said the painting will likely require much of the summer months to complete, due to the bridge’s significant size and weather conditions that can change from day to day.

Road crews added curb, gutter and sidewalk systems and median barriers. On the Wisconsin side, crews completed backfilling behind the bridge abutment and will finish the approach ramp to the westbound side of the bridge in June.

June

During June, work will take place to complete installation of electrical systems within the bridge, including its lighting systems. Bridge planners chose to use lighting systems that illuminate the driving and walking surfaces of the bridge during nighttime hours but avoid giving off any significant ambient light. Lighting fixtures will also use energy-efficient LED technology to light surfaces.

Crews will also complete work on storm water drainage systems for the bridge, which will carry water from the bridge deck to holding ponds on either side of the bridge. Sediments from the storm water will be allowed to settle in the holding ponds before the water is placed back into the St. Croix River. In addition, mooring cells located near Xcel Energy’s King Plant, which held barges of construction materials, will continue to be removed throughout June. The St. Croix riverbed, where the cells were located, will be restored to its original condition.

“We wanted to build a bridge that all of Minnesota and Wisconsin would be proud of for generations to come,” said Zoller. “A bridge that safely carries traffic but also lives in harmony with the surrounding ecosystem and reduces environmental impacts wherever possible. Everyone involved with this project knows we are accomplishing these goals.”

July

Restoration work around the massive construction project, which is scheduled to begin in June, will continue through July and beyond. Although landscaping will continue in future weeks and months, construction equipment will be removed. On the bridge, crews will paint the lane markings on the eastbound and westbound sides. Installation of ornamental railings and light fixtures will be concluded and painting operations will likely wrap up as well.

Although no official opening date has been determined, Zoller expects most on-bridge work to be completed by August. During the months after the bridge opens to traffic, crews will need to landscape areas previously used for construction operations. Additional lighting or signage may also be required.

“We know that people are chomping at the bit to begin using this beautiful bridge,” said Zoller, “but we want to make sure everything is just right before the first car drives across.”

Indiana Department of Transportation   I-65 Bridge Project to Close Lanes South of Roselawn in Jasper County

Crews to close one northbound and one southbound lane of the bridge over Moffitt Ditch

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is alerting drivers to lane closures on I-65, between IN-10 and IN-14, from mile marker 225 to 227, south of Roselawn, Monday, March 20 through the end of September. Crews will close one north and one southbound lane at a time, over the Moffitt Ditch bridge to make repairs and to restore the bridge surface.

During the project, I-65 will be open to all through traffic, but restricted to one north and one southbound lane in the work zone. Motorists should expect periodic delays and allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to the signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Taking care of what we have

INDOT has been expanding its investments in maintenance and preservation projects to keep pavement and bridges in good condition for as long as possible, targeting bridges and roadway sections with the right treatments at the right times.

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.

Michigan Department of Transportation   Southbound I-75 Detroit To Downriver

COUNTY:
Wayne
COMMUNITIES AFFECTED:
Detroit, Melvindale, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, Allen Park, Taylor, Southgate, and Brownstown Township

START DATE:
Weekend of Feb. 4, 2017

ESTIMATED END DATE:
Late 2018

PROJECT DETAILS:
Southbound I-75 will be closed from Detroit to Downriver in less than three weeks. This closure is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) approximately $200 million investment in major repairs over a two-year period.

The detour begins at I-96 in Detroit to Northline Road in 2017; during 2018, the detour will be from I-96 to Sibley Road. Only southbound I-75 will be closed during the two-year period while northbound I-75 will remain open at all times.

The project includes:

  • Removing and replacing all concrete on the I-75 Rouge River bridge, the largest concrete surface in Michigan (approximately 20 football fields).
  • Replacing concrete on the I-75 bridge at Fort Street, south of Springwells Road.
  • Removing the Goddard Street bridge over I-75 and replacing it with two smaller bridges.
  • Repairing 13 other bridges along I-75 through the Downriver communities.
  • Adding intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.

The decision to close one direction of I-75 is based on multiple factors, including:

  • Speed: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time without traffic present will result in the project being completed in the shortest amount of time.
  • Cost: The shorter project duration resulting from rebuilding one side of bridge at a time will result in the lowest overall project cost.
  • Safety: If the bridge was constructed in sections with both directions of traffic sharing one side, there wouldn't be adequate room for emergency crews to respond to incidents on the bridge.
  • Mobility: Maintaining limited two-way traffic on one side of freeway would cause back-ups in both directions, as opposed to one direction. 
  • Quality: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time will allow construction to proceed without interruption since there will be no need to maintain traffic. The decreased vibrations from nearby traffic will result in the best quality workmanship.
  • Duration: By closing southbound I-75, construction activity will move faster since not as much time and effort will be needed to shift traffic.

Motorists will see signs announcing the closure along I-75 to allow residents, businesses, and drivers plenty of time to prepare alternate routes. Detours and details can be found at the project website, www.75rougeriver.com.

The detour route is southbound I-75 to westbound I-96, then southbound I-275 to southbound I-75 in Monroe. Other alternate routes include I-94, M-85 (Fort Street), Jefferson Avenue, and Dix Highway.
