Overnight and Long-Term Ramp Closures Continue in November as Part of Work to Reconfigure the I-290/I-88 Interchange at I-294

DOWNERS GROVE, IL A new long-term closure and detour is scheduled to begin this week at the I-290/I-88 Interchange at the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), along with ongoing overnight closures and detours of additional ramps through November as work continues to reconstruct and reconfigure the interchange. Delays are expected.

In addition, the ramp connecting northbound I-294 to westbound Roosevelt Road, which has been closed since May, is scheduled to reopen.

Construction and electronic message signs will be in place in advance to alert drivers to the ramp and lane closures, traffic shifts and detours. Up-to-date closure information will be available in the Illinois Tollway’s Daily Construction Alerts. All work is weather dependent.

Beginning overnight Friday, November 4, the ramp connecting northbound I-294 to eastbound I-290 is scheduled to close through the end of the year for roadway and ramp reconstruction work. A detour will be posted routing traffic through the St. Charles Road Interchange to access eastbound I-290. The ramp is scheduled to remain closed through the end of the year.


In addition, one night of single lane closures will be needed on northbound I-294 between Roosevelt Road and I-88 to prepare for the ramp closure.

If the work cannot be completed as scheduled, a backup closure will be scheduled during the week of November 6.

The long-term closures of the ramps carrying westbound I-290 to northbound I-294 and westbound Roosevelt Road to southbound I-294 will continue in November.

In November, temporary overnight interchange ramp closures for reconstruction work will include:
