I-80 at US 30 Interchange Reconstruction, Will County IL

Work progresses on the I-80 at US 30 Interchange reconstruction. The Illinois Department of Transportation awarded the design engineering contract for this $47 million interchange project to Ciorba Group in 2009 as part of the add-lane project from US 45 to US 30. After completion of the addition of a third lane to mainline I-80 to US 30, the interchange project was put on hold for funding issues. Construction finally started in the Spring of 2019 after securing funding through the Illinois Competitive Freight Program. The new interchange will enhance traffic safety and operations by expanding I-80 to three lanes in each direction and introducing new ramp alignments and geometrics. Because of the reconstruction and widening of US 30, the I-80 bridges span layout will be reconfigured. In addition to the complete replacement of some of the bridge spans, the nine-span steel curved bridges will be widened and will have new decks. The project also includes traffic signals modernization, new high mast lighting installation, and several improvements to the existing drainage system. As part of this improvement, Ciorba Group also designed the new two-span Old Plank pedestrian bridge that carries the Will County Forest Preserve Old Plank Trail over I-80.

Construction along I-80 will be completed in 2021 and the entire project in 2022. The interchange project is the gateway to the reconstruction of I-80 to the west, the cornerstone project of the newly approved Rebuild Illinois program.
