Welcome to the Interstate 290 Resurfacing Project Website!

This site has been created to facilitate public input and communicate information about the project and schedule. We invite you to explore the site and provide your comments or travel experiences regarding the project through our "Contact Us" section.

This site will be updated periodically as the project start date approaches. In addition, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will maintain the website throughout the project duration and update the project information, suggested alternate routes, ramp closure information, project publications, comment forms and links to other area projects. IDOT appreciates your patience and urges the motoring public to begin to take necessary steps like alternate route planning, car pooling, flexible work schedules, and public transportation to avoid traffic.

* Increased traffic volumes, stress and deterioration of the roadway surface have caused damage, and resurfacing is needed to restore a smooth, safe ride for the motoring public. Major impacts to the motoring public are anticipated.



******************GOOD NEWS******************

IDOT announces no permanent lane closures on Interstate 290 from Thorndale Avenue to Interstate 90/94, and Interstate 355 from Army Trail Road to Interstate 290.
