Ramp from I-294 to I-290 to close for repairs

Posted: Updated:
ELMHURST, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Traffic looking to merge onto the westbound Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) from the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) in west suburban Elmhurst will be diverted next week as crews work to repair sensors on the ramp.

The ramp closure is scheduled to go into effect midnight on Nov. 21, until 5 a.m. The full ramp closure is required because the ramp itself is not wide enough to accommodate a work crew and moving traffic, according to a statement from the Illinois Tollway.

The Tollway said its scheduling the closure during overnight hours to minimize traffic congestion.
