The Plans for the WB I-90/I-94 ramp to WB I-290 are up.  Interesting how WB I-290 will have Aurora as a control city per some of the signing sheets.

As well as the Outbound Ike should have Aurora as the control city.  It's only the second largest city in the state.

If we were talking of revamping control cities in Chicagoland, the outbound control city for I-290 between the Loop and Hillside should be Aurora.  From Hillside to Higgins Road the outbound control should be Schaumburg.  And from Higgins, the outbound control should be Buffalo Grove (as I-290 at that point is a north-south road that leads to IL-53.

I don't really think Aurora is the best city to go with here. 290 doesn't go anywhere near Aurora.

However, it leads into I-88 which does.  The main lanes (left lanes) of I-290 become I-88.

Naperville is a fairly well-known city in the state, so I wouldn't scream if they used it as the control city either.

That said, I never really had a problem with "West Suburbs" either.

Go twin controls with "Aurora - Schaumburg" even.

It appears the WB I-90/I-94 flyover to WB I-290 has been moved to a July 11 special letting.  Source


Looking over the plans for the Rieder Road interchange with I-64, it appears I-64 will be widened from west of the US 50/IL 158 interchange to the new interchange.  Link to plans

Terrible interchange.

Didn't IDOT have plans on widening the Kennedy?

^ Yes, from I-190 to IL 43/Harlem Avenue.  IDOT will probably be getting more CMAQ funding for the EB widening (per this Excel spreadsheet from CMAP).

One of them is widening IL 26 at the north side of the I-80 interchange, where a new 4 lane bridge over I-80 was previously shoehorned into an existing 2-lane roadway and never has functioned properly.  This project was previously pulled by IDOT at the Governor's direction along with several others (notably a new interchange on I-57 south of Manteno) in a cost saving move; good to see it put back on the letting.

The tollway? seems to be doing work on the river bridge and have a new covered up sign for the exit.

They also completely removed East River Road bridge. It's not just because the bridge was old, but to also allow room for the new lanes on the flyover.

That would be the last of the Illinois river bridges to be replaced from LaSalle to Morris, IIRC.

I wonder if this new bridge is going to be 4 lane, what with the horrendous backups there at Starved Rock State Park on holiday weekends.

Nope, it will be a 2-lane, but with wider shoulders and a separated 10 foot bike/pedestrian lane, and will also have roadway lighting from the village all the way to the state park entrance. IDOT is looking into the need for a traffic signal at US 6 and IL 178, which is currently a 4 way stop and gets backed up all the way to I-80 and the ramps on one of those heavy traffic days.  The realignment of IL 178 through Utica has helped the traffic flow immensely, it used to be two 90 degree bends through the downtown area and it now bypasses the downtown about a block and a half to the west with no stops needed.
