SCHAUMBURG, IL --The ongoing project to improve I-290 / IL 53 in the northwest suburbs reaches an important milestone on July 23 as a traffic switch signals the start of the reconstruction of the southbound lanes.

By the Wednesday morning rush period, weather permitting, all traffic will be moved onto the northbound pavement. As has been the case throughout the project, three lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction.

Motorists are reminded that the Higgins Road (IL 72) entrance ramp to northbound I-290 / IL 53 will remain closed until the completion of the project in late October
The overall $62.3 million project is rebuilding I-290 / IL 53 from Thorndale Avenue to Golf Road (IL 58) in Itasca, Elk Grove, and Schaumburg.
