Welcome to the I-90 Phase I Study Website.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (Department) has recently initiated preliminary engineering and environmental studies (Phase I) to improve Interstate 90 (I-90) from Interstate 190 (I-190) to Harlem Avenue (IL 43) in Cook County. This section of I-90 is adjacent to the Village of Harwood Heights, Village of Norridge, City of Park Ridge, and the 41st Ward of the City of Chicago. The proposed project will evaluate operational improvements along I-90 between I-190 and Harlem Avenue (IL 43). This study has been identified as a Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) project.

This web site will provide information on the progress of the project, relevant project-related materials and details about upcoming public meetings and opportunities to participate.
