PROPOSED RESOLUTION

 

REQUESTING THE COOK COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PROVIDE A STATUS UPDATE REGARDING I-390 and I-490 TO THE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE

 

WHEREAS, designated a "Project of National and Regional Significance" by federal transportation legislation, the multi-billion-dollar Elgin O’Hare Western Access Project (now called Illinois Route 390) was conceived to improve travel efficiency, provide western access to O’Hare International Airport, create opportunities for jobs and economic development, enhance multi-modal connections, reduce congestion, and improve safety; and

 

WHEREAS, the State of Illinois, Cook County, DuPage County, the City of Chicago Department of Aviation, and multiple suburban communities have been involved in the planning and completion of Route 390; and

 

WHEREAS, while a vast portion of Route 390 has been completed, landscaping and other “clean-up” activities remain; and

 

WHEREAS, while Route 390 currently ends at Route 83, work is continuing to extend the toll road toward I-490, a new route on the west side of the airport; and

 

WHEREAS, it is expected that in 2021, work will be occurring along the I-490 corridor, with much of the construction focused around the interchanges that will connect the new road with the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90), the Route 390 Tollway, and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294); and

 

WHEREAS, because of the breadth and scope of the work, including the significant contributions made by the County of Cook, it is essential that the Cook County Board keep abreast of the project and its timeline.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Cook County Board of Commissioners does herby request that the Cook County Department of Transportation present an update on the progress of the Illinois 390/Illinois 490 project to the Transportation Committee of the Cook County Board.
