The Illinois Tollway is approving five construction projects totaling $125 million for work on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway.

The rebuilding and widening projects are scheduled to take place from 2013 through 2016. The work is part of the Tollway's 15-year, $12 billion capital program.

The projects will make I-90 eight lanes from the Kennedy Expressway to Randall Road and six lanes from Randall Road to Interstate 39.

It will be built to accommodate new transit options and park-and-ride facilities.

Tollway Director Kristi Lafleur says the congestion relief will save motorists $440 million a year and the work will create more than 11,000 permanent jobs in the Chicago area.
