Welcome to the Interstate Route 94 (Bishop Ford Expy) at Stony Island Feeder Website! 

The Interchange at Interstate 94 and Stony Island Avenue is a complex rather than just a single road that crosses over the expressway. This complex includes access to/from the expressway for Stony Island Avenue, 103rd Street and 100th Street and is used not only by local residents but travels to and from Olive Harvey College, workers and transported materials to and from the Ford Plant as well as access to the southern part of the City of Chicago. To connect all of the roads and ramps together, there are seven bridges within the complex area. The purpose of the work that the Department has undertaken is to address the condition of the ramps, their intersection with these roads and the bridges included to get there. Some of these bridges will be repaired, while others are in such poor shape that they need to be replaced, two bridges will be removed with the project with the roadway built on new embankment.

Project Start: Summer 2013
Project End: Fall 2014
Project Cost: $32,000,000
Project Municipality: Chicago
Project County: Cook

Did you know work zone fatalities are down 29.6 percent compared to 2003? Aggressive law enforcement and awareness campaigns and significant improvements to work zone safety traffic control reduced Illinois work zone fatalities from 44 in 2003, including 5 workers, to provisionally 30 with 3 workers killed in 2010.
So, Give ‘em a brake…slow down for their sake and yours!
