COOK COUNTY, IL -- On May 1, the $12.7 million project to reconstruct the interchange of I-55 at the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) enters Stage II with the six-week closure of the southbound I-55 ramp to northbound I-294.

This closure will continue through June 15 and is expected to have a significant impact on traffic. Over 13,500 vehicles use this ramp each day. Motorists will be directed to use southbound County Line Road to northbound I-55 to northbound I-294 as the detour route.

Overall, this project will replace and widen two bridges and reconstruct five ramps. It is scheduled for completion by October 31.

For additional information regarding this project, including detour maps, motorists may visit the IDOT web site at Also, project brochures will be available from the toll booth operators at the toll plaza for I-55 at I-294.
