Farnsworth Avenue Bridge

Goals & Timeline


This project is for a new ramp configurations, added traffic signals and a wider bridge with turn lanes and a multi-use path for bikes and pedestrians. This 2-year project, run by the Illinois Tollway Authority, will require lane closures and changing traffic patterns. Motorists should expect long delays and take alternate routes when possible. Work is scheduled to begin summer 2016 and be complete sometime in 2017.
