Elgin O’Hare Western Access Tollway (IL-390), Lively Blvd. to Thomas Dr.
This project extends the new IL-390 tollway from Lively Blvd. to Supreme Dr. along the current Thorndale Ave. including a new IL-390 bridge over IL-83 (Busse Rd.), 2 new toll plazas, and ITS integration. New frontage roads are being constructed along the north and south sides IL-390 for local traffic. IL-83 (Busse Rd.) is being fully reconstructed from Industrial Dr. to Mark St. Supreme Dr. and Supreme Dr. is being fully reconstructed between the new frontage roads and beyond including new full-depth pavement, drainage systems, and traffic signals. Upon completion of this work and subsequent projects along the corridor, the IL-390 project will improve travel efficiency; provide western access to O’Hare International Airport; enhance air, rail and trucking connections; and reduce congestion.
