Three-Year Rehab of Kennedy Expressway Set to Launch in March
The Illinois Department of Transportation said a rehabilitation of the Kennedy Expressway
(Interstate 90/94), from the Edens Expressway (Interstate 94) junction to Ohio Street,
is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 20, weather permitting.
The estimated $150-million project consists of rehabilitating 36 bridge structures and the
Reversible Lane Access Control (REVLAC) system, replacing overhead sign-structures,
installing new signage and modernized LED lights, pavement patching and structural painting.
Additionally, Hubbard’s Cave, from Grand Avenue to Wayman Street, will be painted and new
LED lighting installed.
The work will take place over three consecutive construction seasons. The expressway opened in November 1960 and was last renovated in 1994.
