The Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) is severely congested, has 2,000 crashes per year on average, and most of the pavement and bridges are still original to their 1950’s construction and in need of replacement. To address these issues, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) initiated the Eisenhower Expressway Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Study, from Mannheim Road to Cicero Avenue, in the fall of 2009 and subsequently the study limit was extended east to Racine Avenue. The purpose of the study is to improve transportation along the I-290 multi-modal corridor. The specific transportation needs identified include: improve mobility for regional and local travel, improve access to employment, improve safety, improve transit connections and opportunities, and improve facility deficiencies.
