Project Detail

The State of Illinois instituted a comprehensive $5.3 billion congestion-relief program designed to reduce travel times by rebuilding and widening the North Tri-State Tollway (I-294/I-94) throughout a 22-mile corridor in order to provide congestion relief. The project includes reconstructing and widening to four lanes in each direction of the North Tri-State Tollway between Duffy Road and Illinois Route 173 and reconstructing the less congested section north of IL Route 173 to Russell Road. The section between Russell Road and the Wisconsin state line was resurfaced. This work is part of the Tollway’s Congestion-Relief Program to reduce travel times.

MACTEC Engineering and Infrastructure served as the Design and Construction Manager for this segment of the Tollway reconstruction. dsi Associates worked with the MACTEC Engineers and Constructors team to provide design management services and construction management services for all Tollway contracts for widening and reconstruction from Duffy Road to Russell Road in Lake County, Illinois. This included construction inspection services for this span.
