A bit of an odd request
« on: July 25, 2015, 08:50:41 PM »

Google finally updated the images for the Chicagoland area.  I was wondering if anyone can post some recent construction projects that were finished between 2013 and now.  Mainly just so I could look at how things have changed over time.  You don't have to post pictures, just tell me the location.

Also, please don't post small, unnoticeable things like a new streetlight, a recently repaved sidewalk or a new flowerbed. 

Thanks.

* The Arsenal Road interchange on I-55 (Exit 244) was completed.
* The I-294/I-57 interchange was built (Exit 7/Exit 349).
* Look for the bus lane signage on I-55 between I-355 (Exit 269) and Damen (Exit 290).
* Look for the Illinois Tollway exit numbers.

How would I do that?  It was only the images that were updated, not street view.

Ah. Well once Streetview catches up, you will notice that the Tri-State Tollway changed the mile markers.

Other things that are new to Google since 2013 are the I-80 exit for Lisbon Rd and the new I-57 interchange on the Tri-State.

Wonder how Google updated the maps. The bulls training center-err Advocate center- is still a parking lot on satellite view. But you can easily see the new EOE ramps, Mannheim rd widening, overpass in West chicago over UP-W and the 6 laning on north ave from 59 to smith/kautz rd and the overpass on irving park rd in bensenville.

Some other things to look at.

-Western Algonquin Bypass
-IL 176 & 31
-I 90 and IL 47
-EOE and Jane Addams Construction
-I 94 & IL 173 (Not much too it)
-I 94/I 41 from Russell Road to WIS 142
-Advocate Center (Try Google Earth if you can't see it)
-Red Gate Road bridge over the Fox River
-SPUI at I 55 and Central
-Balmoral Ave bridge over Mannheim (under construction)
-Johnsburg Roundabout
-Millennium Park
-Drafttown on Congress between Michigan and Columbus (obviously, that's not still there, but still interesting.)

I left out a couple things that were mentioned repeatedly.  This is obviously an incomplete list.

This may sound weird, but using my house to specify the date the pictures were taken, I'm going to have to say the pictures were dated April 25 of this year.

Just saw the aerial shots of the widening on 90, looks beautiful!

I give it 10 years before the tollway ends up having to 8 lane 90 from Randall to 47.

As some of you may know, http://maps.us.nearmap.com/ flies US metro areas every six months.  They do ask you to register, and a year from now will try to get you to pay for access.
