Welcome to the Interstate Route 94 (Bishop Ford Expy) at
Stony Island Feeder Website!
The Interchange at Interstate 94 and Stony
Island Avenue is a complex rather than just a single road that
crosses over the expressway. This complex includes access
to/from the expressway for Stony Island Avenue, 103rd Street
and 100th Street and is used not only by local residents but
travels to and from Olive Harvey College, workers and
transported materials to and from the Ford Plant as well as
access to the southern part of the City of Chicago. To
connect all of the roads and ramps together, there are seven
bridges within the complex area. The purpose of the work
that the Department has undertaken is to address the
condition of the ramps, their intersection with these roads
and the bridges included to get there. Some of these bridges
will be repaired, while others are in such poor shape that
they need to be replaced, two bridges will be removed with
the project with the roadway built on new embankment.
