IL Tollway Opens New Jane Addams Tollway Ramps as $2.5 Billion I-90 Project Nears Completion

Daily Herald reports, “Illinois tollway leaders opened up ramps on two key Jane Addams Tollway interchanges Friday [November 18] as they race to keep their promise of finishing a massive project by the end of 2016 that has kept drivers simmering. The I-90 mainline between the Elgin Toll Plaza and Tri-State Tollway will be widened to four lanes in each direction, and multiple interchanges will be improved by Dec. 31, officials said . . . before activating completed ramps at Meacham and Roselle roads.” The report adds, “The $2.5 billion, 62-mile I-90 rebuild and widening, which includes a completed stretch between Rockford and Elgin, is being funded with a toll increase instituted in 2012.”
