The Illinois Tollway is introducing 16 miles of SmartRoad on I-90: Technology for a safer, more efficient 21st century roadway.
Overhead signs installed every half mile between Barrington Road and the Kennedy Expressway are in place to provide drivers with real-time information incidents advisories, lane closures and transit services. The signs will remain blank – indicating the road is clear – until there is information to share with drivers.
SmartRoad has been built with flexibility for the future, so moving forward, the Tollway is prepared to accommodate the technology needed to communicate directly with vehicles.
Look for the new signs to go live in late August or early September.

KDOT is in the process of updating the County's 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a blueprint to address the transportation and mobility needs of those living and working in the County over the next 20 years. Public input helps us provide a transportation network that improves quality of life and accessibility for everyone. Our online interactive survey collected over 2,100 responses and over 3,500 individual comments on safety, congestion, biking and walking and transit. KDOT thanks everyone who participated. Comments and survey results are being reviewed and will help to develop the updated plan.
Visit the LRTP webpage to read more about the process, send a comment or request to be part of our contact list.
The update to the Kane County Comprehensive Road Improvement Program (CRIP) or Impact Fee Program was approved by the Kane County Board on March 14, 2017. The update process was conducted pursuant to State law governing road impact fees which requires an update every five years.
The updated CRIP and Impact Fee ordinance includes revisions to the fee schedule to reduce fees by an average of 10% and to allow for a new land use category. The updated ordinance offers additional methods for calculating the fees as well as opportunities to reduce the fees via discounts.
