INSTALLATION OF OVER-THE-ROAD GANTRIES FOR CENTRAL TRI-STATE TOLLWAY (I-294) SMARTROAD SCHEDULED BETWEEN WOLF ROAD AND BALMORAL AVENUE
Temporary overnight lane closures scheduled through March
Temporary overnight lane closures are scheduled to begin tonight 2/5 and continue through March for the installation of 14 over-the-road SmartRoad gantries as part of the Central Tri-State (I-294) Project. The Illinois Tollway is installing the new SmartRoad gantries as part of active traffic management technology that will make travel more efficient for Tollway customers.
Beginning February 5, overnight lane closures will be scheduled as needed starting at 8 p.m. on northbound and southbound I-294 between Wolf Road and Balmoral Avenue with traffic reduced to a single lane at times with intermittent, 15-minute full closures for the installation of the SmartRoad gantries over the road. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. the following morning when work is scheduled.
