Ogden ramp to 294 closed, old ramp is open for detour

The ramp connecting Ogden Avenue to the northbound Interstate 294 ramp is closed through December.

Eastbound Ogden Avenue traffic can access northbound I-294 via the old loop ramp, which will be temporarily reopened during this work for both detours. For westbound Ogden Avenue traffic, a detour will be posted routing traffic through the interchange to access northbound I-294. The ramp connecting northbound I-294 to eastbound Ogden Avenue, which has been closed since September, has reopened.

Information about the project, including maps and construction updates, is available on the Tollway’s website at http://www.illinoistollway.com in the “Projects” section.

Construction in this area is being coordinated with the Illinois Department of Transportation; the villages of Hinsdale, Oak Brook and Western Springs; the Cook County Department of Transportation; the DuPage County Division of Transportation; the Cook County Forest Preserve District; the Oak Brook Park District; and local fire and police departments.

The Tollway is investing $8.9 million to reconfigure the Ogden Avenue interchange to improve mobility and traffic flow. The $4 billion Central Tri-State Tollway Project is reconstructing and widening the roadway between Balmoral Avenue and 95th Street to provide congestion relief, update old infrastructure and address regional needs.
