Elgin O’Hare West Bypass Expressway Receives Funding

In June 2011, the Elgin O’Hare – West Bypass (EOWB) Advisory Council reached consensus to proceed with and fund the $3.4 billion  EOWB Initial Construction Plan.  Two months later, the Illinois Tollway Board of Directors adopted the 15-year, $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving The Future, which commits $3.1 billion toward the $3.4 billion needed to begin building the EOWB as soon as 2013.

Now with final approval of the draft Economic Impact Statement anticipated by the end of 2012, the project is 91% funded.  The following construction timeline has been established:

2013-2015: Gary Avenue to west side of I-290

2015-2018: I-290 to west side of O’Hare

2018-2021: South from Thorndale to I-294

2021-2025: North from Thorndale to I-90
