Elgin O`hare Expressway construction underway

Posted: Updated:
ELGIN, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Construction on I-390 in northwest suburban Elgin began Friday as part of the Illinois Tollway's project to connect the expressway and the I-290.

As a result, traffic will now be shifted on the northbound side of Rohlwing Road until fall 2014, a release from the Illinois Tollway said.

Part of the tollway's $3.4 billion Elgin O'Hare Western Access Project, Illinois Route I-390 will be extended east as a toll road and the existing intersection at Rohlwing Road will be rebuilt as part of a new, larger interchange that will provide congestion relief for traffic traveling east, or to I-290, the release said.

The project will include construction of a new electronic toll road around the western border of O'Hare International Airport linking I-90, I-294 and the extension of the Elgin O'Hare Expressway, according to the release.
