Dan Ryan lane changes at Jane Byrne starts Saturday

Next stage of northbound 90/94 mainline improvements gets underway

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that as part of the ongoing Jane Byrne Interchange reconstruction, lane shifts on the inbound Dan Ryan Expressway (Interstate 90/94) will begin, weather permitting, Saturday, Sept. 19.

To prepare for the next stage of the project, starting at 10 p.m. Saturday, traffic lanes on the inbound Dan Ryan approaching Roosevelt Road will split. The left two inbound lanes will continue in their current configuration, while the third inbound lane will shift over to new pavement and will merge back into traffic just prior to Taylor Street. The right inbound lane will remain closed from the Interstate 55 (Stevenson Expressway) ramp to Roosevelt Road until late summer 2021. The flyover ramp connecting inbound Ryan to the outbound Eisenhower Expressway (Interstate 290) will remain reduced to one lane from Roosevelt Road to Taylor Street. 

The new configuration will allow temporary pavement to be built as part of upcoming construction on the mainline lanes of the Kennedy and Dan Ryan and will remain in place through early October. 

The overall reconstruction project at the Jane Byrne Interchange will improve safety and traffic flow for the more than 400,000 motorists who use it each day, while also enhancing mobility for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users in the surrounding neighborhoods.

The improved Jane Byrne Interchange will be complete in 2022.
