Illinois Tollway Public Open House Meeting Planned for Tri-State Tollway (I-294)/I-57 Interchange Project
 
Event scheduled in Harvey includes career and workforce training information
 
The Illinois Tollway will host an open house meeting next week to share information about 2019 construction and workforce training opportunities as part of the Tri-State Tollway (I-294)/I-57 Interchange Project.
 
The open house meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the South Suburban Cook County American Job Center in the offices of the Illinois Department of Employment Security, 16845 S. Halsted Street, in Harvey.
 
“We want to make sure that customers, residents, businesses and communities are prepared for construction to resume as we work to complete this significant interchange project,” said Illinois Tollway Executive Director José Alvarez.  “Building the new ramps will increase access and provide job opportunities for the Chicago Southland communities.”
 
The Illinois Tollway is advancing work to complete the interchange connecting I-294 to I-57. This final stage of work now scheduled for 2019-2022 will build ramps providing access to and from Chicago, improving regional mobility that began with the completion of ramps providing access to and from Champaign in 2014.
