   State Construction Program Continues as Planned

 SPRINGFIELD - The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) applauds passage of the stopgap measure and will proceed as scheduled with its road and bridge construction program. Workers on IDOT projects will be permitted to be on the job as usual on Friday, July 1, though some work will be suspended due to the need to remove some lane restrictions to accommodate heavier traffic volumes over the holiday weekend.

"Under the Governor's leadership, we look forward to completing a safe and successful construction season that makes Illinois an even better place to work, raise a family and do business," said Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn. "But today is not the end. We look forward to working together with all stakeholders in the near future on a permanent solution and passing a balanced budget with structural reforms."

Without today's funding agreement, IDOT was faced with suspending approximately 800 road and bridge projects statewide worth about $2 billion. An estimated 25,000 construction workers would have been sent home. In addition to IDOT's road program, the construction stoppage also would have halted aeronautics, transit and rail projects, including the Chicago-to-St. Louis high-speed rail program.

With a spending plan in place, IDOT also can proceed with a construction program for the upcoming fiscal year that invests almost $2 billion in the state's roads and bridges. Distribution of the share of the state motor fuel tax for local governments, funding for improvements such as repaving local streets, repairing sidewalks and buying salt for winter, will continue uninterrupted.

   US-20 Lane Closures for Bridge Maintenance in South Bend

Crews to maintain areas of the bridges that cross over Ardmore Trail and State Road 2

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces lane closures on the U.S. 20 Bypass bridges that cross over Ardmore Trail and State Road 2, between Lincoln Way W. and Mayflower Road in South Bend, Tuesday, July 5 through the end of July. Crews will be working to restore and maintain areas of the bridge

During this project, traffic will be reduced to one north and one southbound lane. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

   Indiana Toll Road: All laens to open for holiday weekend; new projects next week

ITR Concession Co. (the Indiana Toll Road) announces an additional 56 lane miles of pavement rehabilitation have been completed and re-opened as part of the 80/90 PUSH pavement project. The sections, located between Mileposts 48-54 and 61-69 in eastern LaPorte/western St. Joe counties, were fully completed yesterday in time to help clear the Toll Road of mainline lane restrictions for the July Fourth holiday weekend. One small lane closure remains on a bridge at MP 32 that will open by Friday afternoon.

PUSH work will resume next week on Wednesday evening with lane restrictions at Mileposts 55-62 (LaPorte County) and MP 73-83 (South Bend/Mishawaka).

The 80/90 PUSH project, an investment that will rehabilitate and upgrade the pavement and bridges from Lake Station to Elkhart, began April 11 and to date has completed nearly 34 percent of the project, or 98 lane miles out of 292 total. The first sections – Mileposts 22-30 and MP 42-49 – were completed at the end of May.

LAKE STATION (I-80/94) EXIT RAMP CLOSURES

As part of the 80/90 PUSH project, structure repairs are also scheduled for the Lake Station interchange (Exit 21), which connects the Indiana Toll Road with I-80/94 (see attached map for clarification).

To complete this work prior to the winter season, the Lake Station eastbound and westbound exit ramps will be closed beginning Monday, July 11, in order for crews to work on Structure 5263. These ramps connect exiting ITR traffic to either direction of I-80/94. The closure will last until approximately mid-November.

DETOUR for ITR Lake Station Exit ramps: Exit at MP 17 (Gary East) > To I-65 SB > Entry to I-80/94 EB or WB.

Exit 17 remains a free exit just as Exit 21. Traffic coming from I-80/94 will still be able to enter the ITR from either direction.

This work is weather-dependent and may be updated if delays are experienced.

TRAVEL PLAZA MASTER PLAN UPDATE – PORTAGE PLAZAS CLOSING

ITRCC is also entering a new phase in its Travel Plaza Master Plan. Beginning Wednesday, July 6, the Portage travel plazas (Milepost 22 east- and westbound) will fully close to begin the demolition and rebuilding of those locations. The construction should take approximately four to five months, with a tentative re-opening planned for early 2017.

ITRCC announced in May that it had entered into concession agreements with Sunoco and HMSHost to build and manage the eight travel plaza locations across the Toll Road. The project includes the Portage plazas and other pairs (eastbound and westbound locations in Rolling Prairie, Elkhart and Howe). Sunoco will be the sole operator of the Portage and Elkhart locations, which will be rebuilt into fuel and convenience stores. It will also operate the fuel stations at the Rolling Prairie and Howe locations, which will be rebuilt into full-service plazas with HMSHost operating and managing the restaurant facilities.

While the Portage travel plazas are under construction, tractor-trailer parking WILL be allowed in designated areas at those locations tentatively beginning July 8, although space is limited. Outside of truck parking, there will be no facilities available at the Portage travel plazas – no restrooms, no fuel, no food – and access will be prohibited to the general public as a matter of public safety.

Following is the most recent travel plaza construction schedule, which is subject to change:
 

  •        Phase 1: Oct. 1, 2015; Fremont travel plaza buildings and fuel stations (MP 146) permanently closed. Demolition began April 2016.
  •        Phase 2: July 2016 – early 2017; Portage (MP 22) travel plazas demolished and rebuilt into fuel/convenience stores.
  •        Phase 2a: Fall 2016 – spring 2017; Howe (MP 126) plazas demolished and rebuilt into full-service plazas.
  •        Phase 3: Spring 2017 – fall 2017; Rolling Prairie (MP 56) travel plazas demolished and rebuilt into full-service plazas.
  •        Phase 4: Fall 2017 – spring 2018; Elkhart (MP 90) travel plazas demolished and rebuilt into fuel/convenience stores.

   Most highway projects to be put on hold for Fourth of July holiday travel

To accommodate heavy traffic expected during the three-day Fourth of July holiday weekend, construction on most major highway projects in Wisconsin will be suspended at noon on Friday, July 1 and will not resume until Tuesday, July 5. However, motorists may still encounter narrow lanes and lane shifts, which require reduced speeds in work zones, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).
 
“Peak travel times are expected between approximately noon and 8 p.m. on Friday and Monday,” says Don Greuel with WisDOT’s Project Services Section. “Traffic will be heavy throughout the holiday period, so driving through work zones will require caution and patience. To prevent crashes, drivers need to slow down, pay attention and not follow other vehicles too closely when approaching and traveling through work zones.  Rear-end collisions caused primarily by speeding, distracted driving and tailgating are the most frequent type of crash in work zones.”
 
Last year, five people died in a traffic crashes in Wisconsin during the Fourth of July holiday period, which ran from Friday, July 3, through Sunday, July 5.
 
“To help prevent needless deaths and injuries from  traffic crashes, the Wisconsin State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies will be out in force during the holiday weekend to crackdown on speeding, tailgating, distracted driving, unbuckled drivers and passengers, as well as drunken driving,” says David Pabst, director of the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety.
 
Significant road construction projects that may affect highway travel during the holiday weekend include the following:
 

  •     Zoo Interchange project in Milwaukee County - lane closures on I-94 eastbound at Sunny Slope Road and on I-41/I-894 northbound at National Ave. The system ramp from I-94 westbound to I-41/I-894 southbound and various other exit and entrance ramps remain closed.

 

  •     Lakefront Gateway project in downtown Milwaukee - access to the lakefront at Lincoln Memorial Drive is closed. Posted detours show alternate access to lakefront destinations and locations to re-enter the freeway system.

 

  •     In Elkhorn, the US-12/County NN Interchange has closures on its on/off ramps affecting travel to the Lake Geneva area. Adjacent collector/distributor roadways remain open providing access to I-43 ramps. Detour routes are posted.

 

  •     I-41/US-45 rehabilitation project in Washington County - a single lane closure on I-41/US-45 northbound from County Q to the I-41/US-45 split will be in effect from Thursday evening (June 30) until noon Friday (July 1).

 

  •     I-39/90 in Dane and Rock counties - new exit ramp location from I-39/90 southbound to WI-59 (Exit 163) near Edgerton and Newville. Ramps to/from I-39/90 northbound at US-51 interchange (Exit 156) are closed until late September 2016. Alternate routes are required.

 

  •     Madison Beltline and Verona Road (US-18/151) interchange in Dane County.

 

  •     I-90 in La Crosse reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction.

 

  •     US-51 in Marathon County - single lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 55 mph between Decator Drive and County WW.

 

  •     WI-29 in Marathon County - single lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 55 mph between Sunrise Drive and Business 51.

 

  •     US-51 in Oneida County - passing lanes between Rocky Run Road and South Blue Lake Road are closed. US-51 remains open to one lane of traffic in each direction.

 

  •     Business 51 (Post Road) in Portage County - single lane closures and temporary traffic signals between Green Drive and Springville Drive.

 

  •     WIS 54/Wood and Portage County U intersection - single lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 55 mph.

 

  •     I-41 in Brown County - there are narrowed travel lanes and shoulders in several locations and reduced speeds to 55 mph from Grant Street to Lineville Road. Also, the southbound I-41 off-ramp to Velp Avenue remains closed with a marked detour.

 

  •     I-43 and I-43/I-41 interchange in Brown County - I-43 between Atkinson Drive and I-41 is reduced to a single lane in each direction with speed reduced to 55 mph. The southbound I-41 off-ramp to I-43 remains closed with a marked detour. Also, the northbound I-43 ramp to I-41 southbound remains closed.

 

  •     Eastbound WI-172 to southbound I-41 ramp closed June 20 for about six weeks to connect the existing ramp with new construction.

 

  •     Eastbound WI-172 traffic seeking southbound I-41 will be detoured east on WIS 172 to Vanderperren Way, to Ashland Avenue and back to southbound I-41.

 

  •     In Manitowoc County, I-43 will be down to one lane near the village of Cleveland. Travelers can use I-41 as an alternate route north or south.

 

  •     US-10 eastbound between Winnebago County CB and I-41 northbound is reduced to a single lane.

 

  •     In Marinette County - US-141 southbound is closed in the village of Wausaukee from WI-180 to north village of Wausaukee limit. A detour using local streets is posted.

   Bridge Deck Sealing Project in Cook County

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that bridge deck sealing will take place at various structures, in Blue Island, Calumet City, Chicago Ridge, Lansing, South Holland and Thornton, beginning, weather permitting, Monday, July 5.

The bridge deck sealing project will require temporary closures at the following locations:

  • 127th Street (Burr Oak Avenue) at the Metra railroad yard in Blue Island
  • Southwest Highway over CSXT railroad in Chicago Ridge
  • The ramp from westbound Interstate 94 to southbound Illinois 394 in Lansing
  • The ramp from eastbound Interstate 80 to westbound Interstate 94 in Lansing, South Holland and Thornton
  • Burnham Avenue viaduct at State Street in Calumet City

In order to complete the work, one lane will be closed in each direction to perform work on arterial roads. Full ramp closures will be necessary to perform work on expressway ramps. The closures are expected to last one day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on non-ramp locations and one night from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. on expressway ramps. The project will be completed in mid-August.

   Dixon Interchange Ramp on Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) to Reopen in Advance of Petunia Festival, Holiday Weekend

Closure and detour scheduled to resume on July 5

The Dixon Interchange ramp bridge carrying eastbound Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) traffic over I-88 to IL-26 is scheduled to reopen temporarily next week in advance of the Dixon Petunia Festival and Fourth of July holiday weekend. The ramp closed in May for repairs and work is scheduled to be complete this fall.

On Wednesday, June 29, the ramp connecting eastbound I-88 to IL-26 is scheduled to reopen beginning at 11 p.m. The ramp will remain open through the holiday weekend, before closing again at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5, as work continues to complete bridge repairs. All work is weather dependent.

Once the ramp is closed, a posted detour will once again be put in place directing traffic to exit at US-30 in Rock Falls located 11 miles west of the interchange and follow the detour route east to IL-26. Electronic message signs and detour signage will be in place in advance to alert drivers to dates and times for the closure and detour.

Full closure of the ramp bridge is necessary because the bridge structure is not wide enough to maintain traffic and provide a work zone. In addition to providing a safe work zone for construction workers and drivers, closure of the bridges will allow work to be complete in half the time.

The Illinois Tollway is repairing six local crossroad bridges on the western segment of I-88 in 2016. Other local crossroad bridges include Hoyle, Atkinson, Bollman and Nelson Road Bridges. Work on the he Pump Factory Road Bridge has been complete. Repairs on the local crossroad bridge structures include pavement patching, bridge joint replacement and repairs on beams and girders.

All work is being coordinated with Whiteside and Lee Counties and the Illinois Department of Transportation, along with local municipalities, townships, school districts and police and fire departments. Up to 1,300 vehicles use the ramp on a daily basis.

Maps and construction project information about the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) Local Crossroad Bridge Project is available in the “Projects by Roadway” section in the Construction/Planning section on the Tollway’s website at www.illinoistollway.com.

   Ramp Closures Scheduled to Begin Next Week in Aurora on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) Farnsworth Interchange

Full closures with detours for four ramps with lane reductions and traffic shifts on Farnsworth Avenue for bridge reconstruction

Four ramps are scheduled to close with posted detours this week and all Farnsworth Avenue traffic is scheduled to shift onto the southbound side of the bridge by the end of June as the Farnsworth Avenue Interchange Project on the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) in Aurora continues.

Electronic message signs and detour signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to dates and times for the scheduled closures and ramp detours. The closures are necessary to provide a work zone that safely accommodates the construction of the new ramps. All work is weather dependent.

The Farnsworth Avenue Interchange Project will provide a new bridge and interchange improvements including removal of two ramps carrying traffic from eastbound I-88 to northbound Farnsworth Avenue and from northbound Farnsworth Avenue to westbound I-88. The existing ramps at the interchange will be reconfigured to accommodate these traffic movements and improve traffic flow on Farnsworth Avenue and I-88. The project is scheduled to be complete in 2017.

Beginning the week of June 20, the ramps connecting eastbound I-88 to northbound Farnsworth Avenue and northbound Farnsworth Avenue to westbound I-88 will be closed permanently for removal and detours will be posted. Traffic on eastbound I-88 exiting to northbound Farnsworth Avenue will be detoured via Diehl Road, Eola Road and Butterfield Road. Traffic on northbound Farnsworth Avenue entering westbound I-88 will be detoured via a similar route using Butterfield Road, Eola Road and Bilter Road.

In addition, ramp closures and detours will also be put in place for the ramps connecting eastbound I-88 to southbound Farnsworth Avenue and southbound Farnsworth Avenue to westbound I-88 as work begins to reconfigure the ramps. Traffic for both these ramps will be detoured via Illinois Route 31 and Indian Trail Road. These ramps will reopen this summer.

Once the ramp closures and detours are in place, work to remove and reconstruct the Farnsworth Avenue Bridge will begin. Southbound traffic on Farnsworth Avenue will first be shifted right onto temporary pavement and remain reduced to one lane to allow for pavement repairs to the southbound lanes. Two lanes will remain open for northbound traffic on Farnsworth Avenue.

Once that work is complete, during the week of June 27, traffic is scheduled to shift into the southbound lanes to allow for the removal of the existing northbound side of the bridge over I-88 and construction of a new bridge. Two lanes will remain open for southbound traffic and one lane will be available for drivers traveling northbound on Farnsworth Avenue. Traffic is scheduled to remain in this configuration through the end of the year.

Throughout construction, traffic shifts will also be needed on ramps open to traffic, and on I-88, shoulder closures, as well as off-peak lane closures and intermittent full closures will be needed to accommodate bridge and ramp construction.

In addition, no pedestrians will be allowed on the Farnsworth Avenue Bridge throughout construction. Signage is in place to direct pedestrians to use Church Road to cross over I-88.

The Farnsworth Avenue Interchange Project is being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation, the City of Aurora, Aurora Township, DuPage and Kane Counties, local fire and police departments.

In 2016, the Illinois Tollway is removing and reconstructing the northbound side of the bridge and removing the two ramps carrying traffic from eastbound I-88 to northbound Farnsworth Avenue and from northbound Farnsworth Avenue to westbound I-88. The project is scheduled to be complete in 2017.

Construction information about the Farnsworth Avenue Interchange Project is available in the “Projects by Roadway” section in the Construction/Planning section on the Tollway’s website at www.illinoistollway.com.

   Installation of Gantries for New SmartRoad Scheduled to Begin Next Week on Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90)

Temporary, overnight lane closures scheduled for gantry installation

Temporary, overnight lane closures are scheduled to begin the week of June 20 for installation of the first over-the-road gantries installed as part of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) Rebuilding and Widening Project. The new SmartRoad high-tech gantries will be using the latest technologies to make the roadway safer and more efficient for Tollway customers, incorporating active traffic management, integrating transit and delivering a 21st century corridor.

Installation of the new gantries will be scheduled during overnight hours beginning the week of June 20, and continuing through the fall. Electronic message signs will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to the overnight lane closures as gantry installation continues. Temporary roadway closures are necessary to provide a work zone that safely accommodates the work and traffic.

Each installation will require overnight lane closures, including intermittent full closures of the roadway, beginning after the evening rush hour. Temporary, full roadway closures, each lasting 15 minutes, will be scheduled between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., ahead of the morning rush hour.

Individual gantries will be delivered in three sections in advance of each overnight installation and assembled on site in the work zone. Construction of each gantry will begin with installation of the center support and then installation of the gantry over the eastbound and westbound side of I-90.

Information about each individual gantry installation and the corresponding lane closures will be listed in the Tollway’s daily lane closure alerts, which can be found on the Tollway’s website at www.illinoistollway.com.

The new I-90 SmartRoad corridor will include a total of 56 high-tech gantries placed every half mile between the Kennedy Expressway and Barrington Road. Electrical wiring, fiber optic cable and infrastructure to support the new gantries have been completed as part of the roadway rebuilding and widening construction.

Installation of the new gantries will start on the east end of the corridor and continue throughout the summer and fall in coordination with the ongoing roadway rebuilding and widening work. Each of the gantries installed will already be equipped with electronic signage and message boards, but will not be operational until the new system testing is complete and the I-90 SmartRoad goes live in spring 2017. 

  

I-90 SmartRoad

As part of the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project, the entire I-90 corridor has been reconstructed to include flexible infrastructure to enable the Tollway to add new "smart" features as needed or as they become available in the years to come. The new gantries will not be used for toll collection or toll violation enforcement. The new I‐90 SmartRoad will feature:

  • Active traffic management (ATM) - ATM will provide real‐time information to drivers including nature and status of traffic incidents, advisory speeds, real‐time lane closures, traffic pattern changes and alternate routes via electronic signs specific to each lane of traffic and message boards.
  • State‐of‐the‐art wireless traffic sensors - New traffic sensors will be activated to provide more comprehensive travel time information. Sensors will also be added to ramps along the corridor, enabling the Tollway to monitor them for potential backups.
  • Integrated transit with Pace - SmartRoad will create the option for Pace buses to travel in the new Flex Lanes (inside lanes and shoulders) on I-90 to route around congestions and provide reliable service.

To support the new SmartRoad, the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project includes upgrades and expansion of the roadway camera system on I-90 from analog to digital high-definition to enhance the Tollway’s ability to better respond to roadway incidents. The new roadway cameras will provide increased coverage and include the full length of the I-90 corridor from O’Hare International Airport to Rockford.

Enhancements will also include state-of-the-art weather stations upgraded to provide pavement monitoring and weather conditions at critical locations, including bridges throughout the system.

In addition, the SmartRoad gantries will include overhead electronic message boards with higher-resolution, full-color graphic capable models, which will feature smaller, four-color digital message signs to enhance communications with drivers throughout the corridor.

Construction information about the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) Rebuilding and Widening Project is available in the “Projects by Roadway” section in the Construction/Planning section on the Tollway’s website at www.illinoistollway.com.

Beginning March 28, all ramps on northbound IL-171 will be closed to traffic in order to reconstruct the interchange. Detours will be posted for the following permanent ramp closures:

    Northbound I-55 to Northbound IL-171
    Southbound I-55 to Northbound IL-171
    Northbound IL-171 to Northbound I-55
    Northbound IL-171 to Southbound I-55
    Northbound IL-171 to Joliet Road
   
All lanes and ramps will reopen when the project is completed in Fall 2016, weather permitting.
   
The scope of the project includes the rehabilitation and widening of eight bridges along northbound IL-171 between 47th Street and 55th Street. It also will include bridge replacement of northbound IL-171 over I-55. In addition, the improvements will feature ramp modification, wall repairs, asphalt resurfacing, pavement markings, landscaping, and replacements of signs, roadway lighting, high mast light towers and drainage structures.

Motorists can expect delays and should seek alternate routes. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
