Illinois construction update for Jane Addams Memorial Tollway

The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway, which is I-90 west of Chicago, will continue to see emergency lane closures between IL 47 (State Road 47) and Powers Road, and from Powers to Sandalwood. The shoulders for eastbound and westbound traffic will be affected through the end of March, as they have been since the start of the Summer Travel Season in 2012.

The lane closures are part of an Illinois Tollway construction project to add a new interchange at the IL 47 junction, which will help traffic flow for traffic around Elgin, West Dundee and the Whisper Creek Golf Club.

All travel lanes will be open during the construction period, which ends March 31. However, some intermittent lane closures are possible as unexpected construction issues arise.
