   Extended Ramp Closures on the Outbound Dan Ryan, Part of JBI Project

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that extended ramp closures will take place on the outbound Dan Ryan Expressway (SB I-90/94), in Chicago, beginning, weather permitting, Wednesday, May 16. The ramp closures are necessary to construct new pavement and drainage along the inbound Eisenhower Expressway (EB I-290), as part of the ongoing Jane Byrne Interchange Project.

Beginning Tuesday, the ramp from outbound Congress Parkway to the outbound Dan Ryan Expressway (SB I-90/94) will be closed. A posted detour will direct traffic to go NB on the Kennedy Expressway, exit at Augusta Boulevard and reenter SB I-90/94.

The ramp from the outbound Dan Ryan to Taylor Street/Roosevelt Road also will be closed. The posted detour will direct traffic to exit at 18th Street, reenter northbound I-90/94 and exit at Roosevelt Road/Taylor Street. The ramp will be accessible to traffic traveling from the inbound Eisenhower to outbound Dan Ryan.

Expected to reopen late August 2018, the ramp closures will allow for improvements on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway. The work is part of the overall Jane Byrne Interchange project.
 
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.

The overall reconstruction project at the Jane Byrne Interchange will improve safety and traffic flow for the more than 400,000 motorists who use it each day, while also enhancing mobility for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users in the surrounding neighborhoods. For more information and to view a live camera feed of the work zone, visit www.circleinterchange.org.

   Jane Byrne Interchange Project: Extended Lane and ramp Closures on IB Eisenhower

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced a lane and ramp closure will take place on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway (eastbound I-290), in Chicago, as part of the ongoing Jane Byrne Interchange reconstruction project, beginning, weather permitting, Monday, March 26.

Beginning Monday, one lane on the inbound Eisenhower will be closed between Ogden Avenue and Halsted Street, reducing the expressway from four to three lanes.

The ramp from the inbound Eisenhower Expressway to Racine Avenue also will be closed. The posted detour will direct traffic to take the Paulina Street exit ramp to eastbound Congress Parkway and continue to Racine Avenue.

Expected to reopen in Winter 2019, the lane and ramp closures will allow for improvements on the inbound Eisenhower, including new pavement, retaining walls and drainage. The work is part of the overall Jane Byrne Interchange project.

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.

   Chicago: Extended Closure On Ramp From The Inbound Kennedy To Inbound Congress Parkway

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that an estimated two-year closure will take place on the ramp that carries traffic from the inbound Kennedy Expressway (southbound I-90/94) to eastbound Congress Parkway beginning Tuesday, Jan. 15, weather permitting.

The closure is necessary to complete road and bridge construction, part of the ongoing Jane Byrne Interchange reconstruction project.
 
Beginning Jan. 9, the ramp from the inbound Kennedy to inbound Congress Parkway will be fully closed for approximately two years. A posted detour will direct southbound I-90/94 traffic to continue south and exit at Roosevelt Road. Motorists should go east on Roosevelt Road, north on Jefferson Street, east on Harrison Street and north on Wells Street to access eastbound Congress Parkway.
 
The ramp closure will allow for construction of a new ramp from the inbound Kennedy to inbound Congress, as well construction on the eastbound Congress Parkway bridge over the Kennedy and Dan Ryan expressways and the replacement of the Van Buren Street bridge.
 
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.

   Bridge Deck Repairs on SB I-55 near Arsenal Road

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that lane and shoulder closures will take place on southbound Interstate 55 over the BNSF railroad and Grant Creek, in Will County, weather permitting, Saturday, June 2 through Sunday, June 10. The lane and shoulder closures are necessary for a bridge repair project.

In order to complete the bridge repairs, the right lane and right shoulder will be closed on the structure that carries southbound Interstate 55 over the BNSF railroad near Arsenal Road. During peak travel times, motorists are encouraged to use an alternate route. A suggested alternate route includes taking westbound Interstate 80 to southbound Illinois 47 to meet back with Interstate 55 south of the work zone.

Southbound I-55 will have at least one lane of traffic open at all times during the repairs. Work is expected to be completed by Sunday, June 10, weather permitting.

The bridge repair project will provide temporary repairs to the bridge until a major rehabilitation project takes place in 2019.

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.

   Long-Term Bridge Closures Scheduled to Begin Next Week Over Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) in DeKalb and Ogle Counties

The Illinois Tollway is scheduled to begin repair work in May on two local crossroad bridges carrying traffic over the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) including the Watson Road Bridge in DeKalb County and the Woodlawn Road Bridge in Ogle County.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to the start of construction and bridge closures.

Beginning the week of May 14, work is scheduled to begin and continue through July at the Watson Road and Woodlawn Road bridges. Both bridges will be closed to traffic and no detours will be posted. The full closure of both bridges is necessary because these local crossroad bridges over I-88 are too narrow to accommodate traffic while safely completing the work.

In 2018, the Illinois Tollway is repairing 17 local crossroad bridges carrying traffic over I-88, between Illinois Route 251 near Rochelle and Illinois Route 56 near Sugar Grove. Bridge work and closures are being staggered so that adjacent bridges are not under construction at the same time and can be used as alternative routes.

In most locations, local crossroad bridge improvements will include pavement patching, bridge deck rehabilitation, bridge joint replacement and repairs on bridge beams, piers and girders.

Bridges scheduled for repairs include: Steward Road/Main Street (Rochelle), Mulford Road, Locust Road, Woodlawn Road, Tower Road, Willrett Road, Shabbona Road, University Road, South First Street, Peace Road, Somonauk Road, Hinckley Road, Keslinger Road, County Line Road, Watson Road, Dauberman Road, Main Street (Kane County) and Bliss Road.
