Tollway Construction Project Ends This Weekend

CHICAGO (WBBM) – The final section of the Jane Addams Tollway rehab project is scheduled to end this weekend.

Tollway officials say this $65 million part of the project is ending on time and within budget. Work on the section between U.S. 20, the Elgin toll plaze and Barrington road began last spring and, officials say, will mean I-90 should be in good driving condition this winter.

There will be some off peak lane closures over the next two weeks for pavement striping and landscaping. In 2013, a much bigger project begins to rebuild and widen the Jane Addams between Rockford and O’hare.
