Hypotenuse construction is stalled.

We all can cheer for that.

Nothing that I've heard. Curiously would they begin the widening before/during the Central Tri-State rebuild, since the strangler is a major piece to the widening puzzle

The ramps are the issue at I-290 / I-88 / I-294 not the strangler part. Now what about I-88 widening right there that can backup on to the I-294 at times.

Are any form of toll lanes being proposed along the Interstate 290 Eisenhower Expressway? How effective would congestion-priced lanes be for the corridor?

Wasn't sure where to post it. It's a combined project that intertwines with the eisenhower rebuild and tri-state.

I just checked the document "Section 106 Effects Assessment Report": http://eisenhowerexpressway.com/pdfs/i-290%20effects%20assessment%20report%20april%202017.pdf
I saw that the preferred alternative is the HOT 3+ Alternative. I guess that answers my question.

Section 5 of the Draft EIS is the place where the Preferred Alternative HOT 3+ is discussed in detail.
