I-90 lane closures begin at Riverside

Staff Report

Ramp repairs requiring long-term lane closures at the East Riverside Boulevard exit on Interstate 90 are scheduled to begin this week and continue into fall.

The Illinois Tollway is repairing pavement, guardrails, barrier walls, curbs and gutters on the ramps at the Illinois Route 173 and Riverside exits.

Work at the Route 173 interchange is scheduled to finish this week, which will allow the Tollway to begin work at Riverside.

Work at the Riverside interchange is scheduled to begin Friday on the eastbound entrance and westbound exit ramps at I-90 and be complete in late September.

Work will begin with the closure of the I-PASS or Pay Online lanes at each of the two ramp toll plazas for approximately two weeks. Once complete, the cash lanes at each of the two ramp toll plazas will close for approximately two weeks.

Cash customers accessing the Tollway via the I-PASS lanes will need to pay online within seven days of using the toll plaza. Up to 7,270 vehicles use the two ramps on a daily basis.

The Tollway is coordinating work at the Illinois Route 173 and Riverside Boulevard exits with the cities of Rockford and Loves Park, the village of Machesney Park and the Illinois Department of Transportation.
