Here’s a quick heads up for any Kane County drivers who regularly use the Kennedy Expressway, aka Interstate 90/94.
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that as part of the ongoing Jane Byrne Interchange reconstruction, the ramp from Randolph Street to the inbound Kennedy Expressway (Interstate 90/94) will close temporarily, weather permitting, from 10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18, to 4 a.m. Monday, Dec. 21, for the construction of an overhead sign structure foundation.
The closure, originally scheduled for last month, was postponed.
A detour will direct traffic south on Des Plaines Street and west on Madison Street to connect to the inbound Kennedy via the Madison Street ramp.
Motorists should expect significant delays and allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limit and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
