Chicago area toll road opens more lanes

| 1/9/2006

There’s now an additional lane in each direction on Interstate 88, the Reagan Memorial Tollway, in the western suburbs of Chicago. The Illinois Department of Transportation opened the additional lanes Friday, Jan. 6.

The lane opening caps a two-year project to widen and improve a five-mile section of toll road between Illinois Route 59 and Washington Street in Naperville, IL.

Pavement striping and the installation of pavement markers are still on the list for project completion.
