(GREEN OAKS) Long-term lane closures on the Tri-State Tollway start this week as crews begin making repairs to four toll plazas in the northern suburbs.
Crews will be repairing guardrails, barrier walls, curbs, gutters and entrance ramps at Buckley Road, Townline Road, Half Day Road and Lake Cook Road, according to the Illinois Tollway.
I-PASS lanes on the tollway (I-94) will remain available throughout the construction, but drivers paying by cash will be directed to pay online when lanes with coin machines are closed, the tollway said. No more than one toll collection lane will be closed at a time.
The construction project will begin at Buckley Road near Green Oaks and Townline Road near Lake Forest, the tollway said. Those two plazas will see toll lane closures starting this week through Memorial Day weekend.
Work at the Half Day Road plaza near Lincolnshire starts May 4, and continues into early summer, the tollway said. Work begins later in May at the Lake Cook Road plaza near Northbrook and will last into the summer.
Drivers using cash have seven days to pay missed tolls online at www.illinoistollway.com.
