Illinois Tollway 

I-90 Reconstruction and Widening - Work Continues
The Illinois Tollway began work to rebuild and widen I-90 from Elgin to the Kennedy Expressway in 2014.  The changes will add a travel lane in each direction as well as reconstruct the existing pavement.  The Illinois Tollway's website ( should be used as the sole source for information.

Questions and comments about the I-90 work can be sent to the Illinois Tollway using the following email address:

A number of bridges crossing the Tollway in the vicinity of Hoffman Estates are in the process of being replaced as part of the initial stages of the I-90 work in 2014 to 2016.  These include:

--  Barrington Road: Northbound Barrington Road Traffic Shift
Northbound Barrington Road traffic has been shifted onto the new pavement on the east side of the bridge.  Southbound traffic will remain in its current configuration.  An active work zone area is located in the center of the roadway; please continue to use caution while traveling across the bridge.

--  Barrington Road: Greenspoint Parkway Construction Work
As part of the Barrington Road Interchange project, a portion of Greenspoint Parkway is being reconfigured to meet the needs of the new eastbound exit ramp.  Road construction started on Greenspoint Parkway in February 2016.  Greenspoint is reduced to one lane south / eastbound through the curve in the northeast part of the business park, with no westbound traffic allowed in this section.  The north access drive of the parking lot at 2800 Greenspoint Parkway is closed off so no westbound cut-through traffic is able to go around the work zone.  Message boards with notifications of this work have been placed by the Tollway.  Estimated completion of the work is mid-May 2017.

--  Roselle Road - The Roselle Road Bridge is now complete, and all lanes are open to traffic.  In addition, construction of the westbound exit, eastbound entrance and exit ramps is now complete and these ramps are open to traffic.

A separate but related project will make changes to Central Road for the new westbound entrance ramp of the Roselle Road Interchange.  Cook County, the Illinois Tollway, and the Village of Schaumburg are working on the plans for the new entrance ramp connecting Roselle Road to westbound I-90 which is scheduled for construction in 2017.  Please continue to use caution while traveling in the construction zone.  Temporary lane closures will be posted throughout the project and drivers should anticipate minor traffic delays.

Please visit the Illinois Tollway website for status of these and other bridge projects on I-90.



Reconstruction of the eastern segment of I-90 will complete the $2.5 billion of the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project.  As part of the project, the eastern segment of I-90 will be rebuilt and a new lane added to provide four lanes in each direction between Randall Road and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294).  Between Lee Street and the Kennedy Expressway, the eastbound mainline lanes over the Des Plaines River Bridge east of the River Road Toll Plaza will be reconstructed.

The new eastern segment roadway will include a 9-inch aggregate base covered by 3 inches of asphalt and then 13 inches of new concrete pavement.

The shoulders and inside lanes in both directions on I-90 are being widened to accommodate bus on shoulder service and future transit opportunities. The project will integrate transit into the corridor today, as well as accommodate future transit expansion plans. Park & Ride facilities will be constructed by Pace at Randall Road, Illinois Route 25 and Barrington Road.

The project will also provide 10 new crash investigation sites throughout the eastern segment.

The Illinois Tollway website contains information on construction and operations on its entire system.  Project specific information is posted and updated by Illinois Tollway staff.  Information is available on daily activities such as the link to planned lane closures shown below.
