The Illinois Tollway is advancing work in 2019 to complete the interchange connecting I-294 to I-57. This final stage of work scheduled for 2019-2022 will build ramps providing access to and from Chicago, improving regional mobility that began with the completion of ramps providing access to and from Champaign in 2014.
The open house will provide the opportunity for the Tollway to share 2019 construction information with customers, residents and businesses, as well as introduce the Illinois Tollway’s ConstructionWorks Program designed to link job seekers with opportunities for rewarding careers in Illinois’ high-demand transportation related construction industry.
