Information about improvements to the
on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90)
in northern Cook County, Illinois 
























Project Overview

About the Project

The Village of Hoffman Estates, in partnership with the Illinois Tollway and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), is improving the Barrington Road interchange on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90).

The Barrington Road interchange is a vital highway point component for the Villages of Hoffman Estates and South Barrington, as well as Palatine, Schaumburg, Barrington and Hanover Townships.  Barrington Road is a state-designated north-south Strategic Regional Arterial (SRA) in northern Cook County. SRA routes support the Chicago-area expressway system by handling larger volumes of traffic.  The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway is part of Interstate 90, the longest interstate in the United States, covering a 77‑mile segment of the Illinois Tollway system.  The Jane Addams Memorial Tollway extends from near the Wisconsin border to the Kennedy Expressway. The Barrington Road interchange provides access for the SRA with the I-90 interstate system.

The purpose of the proposed improvement is to provide full accessibility and connectivity to, from, and across I-90, and to provide safe mobility for multimodal users crossing I-90 and Barrington Road in the vicinity of the interchange.

Public participation is an essential component of this study, which follows the principles of Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) to facilitate public involvement. Meetings and conversations have been held with community leaders and "stakeholders". Public meetings have also been held during the planning process to solicit general input, answer questions, and address concerns. This website provides information on the progress and schedule of the project, provides relevant documentation from the public and community advisory group meetings, and provides an avenue to contact the project team directly.

Concurrent projects by others include the Illinois Tollway Jane Addams (I-90) Rebuilding and Widening project as well as the Pace Barrington Road Park-n-Ride project. Future projects currently under study include the Metra STAR Line..
