Looks like phase 2 of the I-294/I-57 interchange will be finally opening to traffic on the night of September 11th, 2 full years ahead of schedule!

I bumped the 5-year dormant thread on the interchange with a link to the Chicago Trubune story on the planned opening this weekend

This was posted to O'Hare's FB page - I thought it was an interesting view of construction on I-490:

ET21:
294 observations from this past weekend. I wasn't able to get good looks at the 290/88 interchange work due to nighttime darkness.

-From 95th to Hinsdale Oasis: NB lanes have been shifted back to the right onto new concrete/pavement as they begin to rebuild the middle from the toll booth to just before LaGrange Rd. No changes otherwise, rebuild continues for the new right lanes over I-55 and between I-55/Plainfield Rd. Concrete has begun to get laid for the new SB lanes between the toll booth and 95th, still have to use the one right lane to access 95th.

New bridge beams are up over 87th/Roberts. Mile long bridge continues work, Plainfield Rd bridge has begun to rebuild the other half.

-From Hinsdale to St. Charles Rd: NB lanes have been shifted now from Ogden to the I-88 WB ramp as the Ogden interchange work really gets going. New noise wall beams have also begun to go up but couldn't see the extent due to nighttime darkness. No changes otherwise going through St. Charles Rd. SB lanes are shifted at St. Charles as they begin to rebuild the roadway underneath the bridge. Minor shifts between Cermak and Ogden due to repaving efforts/Ogden Ave interchange work.

The BNSF bridge is fully complete and the shoulder on both sides are being cleared out to begin building the new roadway. The new pedestrian bridge by 47th St remains at 50%, only the NB lanes section is up.

-From St. Charles Rd to Balmoral: New SB lanes between North Ave and St. Charles continues work. The entire center section is now being rebuilt with the most significant construction around the future 490 JCT where a central pier is being built into the median.

ET21:
Added note: The new I-55 to NB 294 is now open. The old ramp is slowly being torn down.
