During this next phase of work, westbound I-80/94 will continue to have four travel lanes during daytime hours with lane shifts in place. The left inside lane will be directed down a counter flow lane, and the second lane from the left will be directed down a chute lane. These two left lanes will not have access to the following exits: Exit 5 (Cline Ave/State Road 912), Exit 3 (Kennedy Ave), Exit 2 (Indianapolis Blvd/U.S. 41 southbound), and Exit 1 (Calumet Ave/U.S. 41 northbound). Motorists going westbound on I-80/94 will need to be in the right two lanes prior to Burr St to access these exits. During the construction phase of this project, work will occur 24 hours a day and up to 6 or 7 days a week. Motorists should be prepared for changing traffic patterns on eastbound and westbound I-80/94 through the life of the project, as well as nightly lane closures in both directions.

Overnight Closures Scheduled on Tri-State Tollway (I-294) and Plainfield Road for Bridge Reconstruction Work

Lane closures and full stops needed to safely accommodate bridge beam placement for new Plainfield Road Bridge over I-294 and Flagg Creek

DOWNERS GROVE, IL – Temporary, overnight lane closures are scheduled to begin next week on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) between I-55 and the Hinsdale Oasis, on the ramp carrying traffic from I-55 to northbound I-294 and on Plainfield Road for bridge beam placement as part of the ongoing reconstruction of the local crossroad bridge over I-294 and Flagg Creek.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place to alert drivers to lane closures, full traffic stops and work zone speed limits. This work is scheduled during overnight hours to provide a safe work zone and reduce the disruption to daily drivers. Up-to-date information regarding closures will be available in the Illinois Tollway’s Daily Construction Alert. All work is weather dependent.
 
On Monday, November 7, traffic on Plainfield Road is scheduled to be reduced to one lane between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., as needed, to place beams for the Plainfield Road Bridge over Flagg Creek. Flaggers will be used to maintain bi-directional traffic.
 
In addition, during the week of November 7, on northbound I-294 lane closures are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. with traffic reduced to a single lane by 11 p.m. to place beams for the Plainfield Road Bridge over I-294. The ramp carrying I-55 traffic to northbound I-294 is also scheduled to be reduced to one lane at 8 p.m., followed by intermittent, full closures, each lasting 15 minutes, beginning at midnight.
 
On Plainfield Road beginning at 10 p.m. traffic is scheduled to be reduced to a single lane with flaggers used to maintain bi-directional traffic.

The Plainfield Road Bridge will remain open to traffic throughout construction, with one lane in both directions available for up to 14,200 vehicles using the bridge daily. Reconstruction of the Plainfield Road Bridge is scheduled to be complete in 2023.
 
The existing local road bridge carrying Plainfield Road traffic over the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) is being removed and rebuilt with a new, longer and higher bridge structure to accommodate the reconstruction and widening of the Central Tri-State Tollway. In addition, Cook County is currently conducting a study for the improvements of Plainfield Road, and the new bridge will be built to ensure compatibility with future plans.
 
The new Plainfield Road Bridge structure will provide for one lane of traffic and wide shoulders in each direction. To provide for local pedestrian and bicycle access, a protected sidewalk will be included on the north side of the bridge and a new a protected bicycle/multi-use path and sidewalk will be built on the south side.
 
Additional work on this project includes restoration of retaining and noisewalls, sewer construction, utility work, lighting, landscaping and drainage improvements.
 
This project is being coordinated with Cook County, Village of Burr Ridge, Village of Indian Head Park and Village of Western Springs, as well as local fire and police departments.
 
The $4 billion Central Tri-State Tollway (I-294) Project is reconstructing and widening the roadway between Balmoral Avenue and 95th Street to provide congestion relief, update old infrastructure to meet current and future transportation demand and address regional needs. This work is part of the Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future. More than 220,000 vehicles use the Central Tri-State Tollway daily.
