The two-year planning and design project to improve the I-90/94 at I-290 Jane Byrne (Circle) Interchange seeks to create a safer, more efficient, and more functional exchange. As a vital hub for local, regional, and national freight traffic, the project included a large public-input and stakeholder involvement component, including project “working group” charrettes and public hearings. Recommended site enhancements include landscaped embankments, community identifiers, site furnishings, and distinctive pavement treatments. The Phase II construction is currently in progress.
