Be Prepared on the Road This Weekend and Beyond

Summer is ending, but roadway construction continues in to the fall. Work zone speed limits are in effect 24/7, so slow down whether or not workers are present.

Ongoing work includes:

  • Rebuilding and widening the eastern segment of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) between the Elgin Toll Plaza and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294)
  • Construction on Illinois Route 390 between Lake Street (U.S. Route 20) and I-290 as part of the Illinois Route 390 Project
  • Roadway resurfacing on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) between Illinois Route 251 near Rochelle and U.S. Route 52 near Dixon

Additionally, this summer has been a record breaker in terms of people on the road, as we head in to another holiday weekend, try to travel smart. If you can travel during non-peak hours: The best time to start your trip is Thursday before 1 p.m. or Friday between 10 and 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. Find out what is on the road before you get on the road. The Illinois Tollway and its partners put information at your fingertips:
