IL Tollway Announces $609 Million in 2012 Construction Plans

More than $137 million will be spent on Tri-State Tollway (I-94/I-294) resurfacing, and ramp and bridge repairs

The Illinois Tollway Authority announced its construction program for next year -- nearly $609 million in projects which include a $98.8 million plan to reconstruct and widen bridges throughout the I-90 corridor from the Kennedy Expressway to Rockford, Ill.

New projects will include beginning construction of two new, all electronic interchanges, including the new I-294/I-57 interchange -- one of two in the nation where two interstates cross but don’t connect, a release from the Tollway said.
