Month-long ramp closure at southbound I-294 to westbound I-290 set for ramp and pavement reconstruction
The Illinois Tollway is scheduled to begin a long-term closure this week for the ramp connecting the southbound Tri-State Tollway (I-294) to westbound I-290 for ramp and pavement reconstruction as work continues on the Tollway’s Central Tri-State Tollway Project. The ramp closure and posted detour are scheduled to be in place through November.
Electronic message and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers on I-294 to the construction work zones, ramp closure and detour. Up-to-date information regarding lane closures will be available in the Illinois Tollway’s Daily Construction Alert. All work is weather dependent.
On Thursday, October 21, beginning at 8 p.m. the ramp connecting southbound I-294 to westbound I- 290 is scheduled to be closed to traffic with a posted detour for one month. The detour will direct traffic to continue southbound on I-294 to the eastbound I-290 ramp before routing traffic to Mannheim Road and through the interchange ramps to access westbound I-290.
