The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) invites you to attend an open house public meeting to learn about important updates to the preliminary engineering and environmental study (Phase I) for the improvement of Interstate 55 from Interstate 355 to Interstate 90/94 project.
Environmental approval was received by the Federal Highway Administration in July 2016 for one managed lane, which will operate as an Express Toll Lane (ETL) in each direction. IDOT has initiated a new Phase I study to further improve operations and reliability along the corridor by evaluating the addition of a second ETL within the median from east of Interstate 294 to I-90/94 while the section from I-355 to I-294 would remain as one ETL in each direction. The public is invited to attend and provide input on the additional alternative under consideration.
The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. Interested people can attend anytime from 4-7 pm. Exhibits will be on display and an audiovisual presentation will be shown continuously during the meeting. Project team members will be present to discuss the project and answer questions.
Wednesday, Dec. 6
