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.
