Work on Byrne Interchange to cause overnight lane closures

SHARE Work on Byrne Interchange to cause overnight lane closures

Construction on the Jane Byrne Interchange will cause some lane closures on the Kennedy and Dan Ryan expressways for two nights starting Monday.

The overnight lane closures will allow crews to reconfigure the work zone to start construction on a new flyover bridge from the inbound Dan Ryan Expressway to the outbound Eisenhower Expressway, the Illinois Department of Transportation said in a statement.

Starting at 10 p.m. Monday, one lane of outbound I-90/94 will be closed from Jackson to Roosevelt, IDOT said. A second lane will close at midnight, and both lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday.

On Tuesday, one lane of inbound I-90/94 will be closed between Lake and Harrison, IDOT said. Again, a second inbound lane will close at midnight and both will reopen by 5 a.m. Wednesday.

More than 400,000 vehicles daily use the Jane Byrne Interchange, which connects the Eisenhower, Kennedy and Dan Ryan expressways with Congress Parkway. The interchange is in the midst of a four-year, $475 million renovation to reduce congestion and improve safety, IDOT said.
