Illinois I-88 Reagan Memorial Tollway project begins

Feb. 27, 2018

Westbound reconstruction is beginning this year, while work on the eastbound side will start in 2019

The Illinois Tollway is beginning work on the reconstruction and widening of the westbound side of the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) between I-290 and York Road in Oak Brook.

More than 130,000 vehicles use this stretch of I-88 daily in the state. Electronic message signs and construction signage will alert drivers in advance of work that will affect traffic. Reconstruction of the eastbound side of I-88 is scheduled for 2019.

The I-88 Reconstruction Project is designed to extend the life of the roadway, increase traffic capacity and provide safe and convenient travel for tollway customers.

Work on I-88 is part of the Illinois Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion "Move Illinois" capital program. According to officials, as many as 120,000 jobs will be created through the project, which is aimed at linking economies throughout the region.
