How Elmhurst Road diverging diamond should work
By Marni Pyke
May 6, 2014 5:17 PM
Illinois tollway planners predict drivers and pedestrians -- guided by traffic signals -- will find navigating the Elmhurst Road and Jane Addams Tollway (I-90) interchange safer once a somewhat counterintuitive redesign is constructed. The "diverging diamond" interchange will be complete in 2016 at the same time ramps providing access to and from the west and other improvements are finished. It works by briefly shifting traffic into opposite lanes using signals on bridges or underpasses so that vehicles can turn left onto the tollway without facing oncoming cars. Then, traffic is routed back to the right side of the road.

May 6, 2014 9:45 AM
The number of children killed by drunken motorists has declined substantially in recent years, but the biggest threat remains their own drivers, not strangers in other vehicles, a study found.

May 6, 2014 6:39 AM
Neither a doubleheader loss on Saturday nor a slow start on Monday was going to deter Elgin from salvaging the final game of a 3-game series against crosstown rival Larkin. The Maroons rallied from a 3-0 deficit for a 5-3 win at Trout Park on Monday in an Upstate Eight Conference River Division contest. After surrendering 3 runs in the first inning, Elgin starter Clay White (3-1) settled down to blank the Royals the rest of the way to pick up the win.
