   Oversize Load Impacts N. Ind. Hwys. Starting Saturday

The state of Indiana has permitted a slow-moving oversize, overweight load to traverse state highways with police escort during about four nights beginning on or after Saturday, Nov. 7.

The approximately 185-mile route will begin at S.R. 249/George Nelson Drive near the Port of Indiana - Burns Harbor and follow U.S. 12, S.R. 49, U.S. 6, U.S. 421, U.S. 30, S.R. 9 and S.R. 124 to the Ohio State Line. INDOT urges motorists avoid these routes on the nights detailed below.

Short term closures of cross streets will be needed as the truck moves through the area. Law enforcement also may block all directions of traffic where the oversize load may need to use the opposing side of the road to navigate certain intersections or interchanges.

Night 1: S.R. 249 south to U.S. 12 east to S.R. 49 south to U.S. 6 east to U.S. 421 south to U.S. 30 east. Load will stop on U.S. 30 just east of U.S. 35.

   Parking Lot Rehabilitation Work Continues at Illinois Tollway Oases

Work on commercial truck parking lots to begin at O’Hare Oasis; buildings and fuel stations remain open during construction

Work on the Illinois Tollway’s Oases Parking Lot Rehabilitation Project continues with work scheduled to begin this week on the commercial truck parking lots at the O’Hare Oasis on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) in Schiller Park and on the car parking lots at the Belvidere Oasis on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90).

The Illinois Tollway is rehabilitating parking lots at all of the Tollway oases. Work includes the reconstruction of commercial truck lots and repaving or patching of car parking lots at all oases, except for the Des Plaines Oasis on I-90, where only the commercial truck parking lots are being rehabilitated.

Throughout the project, commercial trucks will still have access to fuel stations at all oases even when the lots are closed for construction. Cars will have access to parking lots, but space will be limited. All repair work is scheduled to be completed this fall.

Parking lot construction includes:

  • Belvidere Oasis on I-90 - Car parking lot repairs are scheduled to begin the week of September 8. Commercial truck parking lot repairs have been completed.
  • Des Plaines Oasis on I-90 – Commercial truck parking lot repairs are underway.
  • Lake Forest Oasis on I-94/I-294 - Car parking lot repairs are scheduled to begin in mid-September. Commercial truck parking lot repairs have been completed.
  • O’Hare Oasis on I-294 - Commercial truck parking lot repairs are underway.

The Tollway’s Oases Parking Lot Rehabilitation Project will include curb and sidewalk upgrades, rebuilding the commercial truck parking lots with concrete pavement and replacement of car parking lots and service roads with asphalt pavement.  Pavement replacement and repairs will extend the life of the parking lots and service roads, providing a smooth driving and parking surface for customers.
