I-90 and IL Route 47 InterchangeI-90 NW OF CHICAGO - FULL ACCESS INTERCHANGE
The Illinois Route 47 Interchange Project is a full access, all-electronic interchange at Illinois Route 47 on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90). This road project featured several new green and sustainable construction initiatives, including a geothermal water piping system that makes use of the earth's natural heating and cooling abilities to help heat and cool nearby plaza buildings in a more cost-effective and sustainable manner, reflective roofs and trellised vegetation for plaza buildings to further reduce heating and cooling costs, as well as ramp shoulder pavement that will allow water to seep through and reduce storm water runoff.
The full interchange is surrounded by land that is already zoned and annexed into the Village. Adjacent to the interchange is more than 300 acres of land for commercial and industrial use, with utilities and roadways complete.
