Rebuilding the Fox River Bridge

Rebuilding the Fox River Bridge in Elgin, Illinois, is one of the largest single awards in the $2.5 billion rebuilding and widening of the I-90 Jane Addams Memorial Tollway between the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) and Rockford. Originally opened in 1958, the six-lane bridge is being replaced with two side-by-side bridges, 1,315-feet long, standing 40 feet above the Fox River. The new structure will increase capacity to eight lanes with full shoulders in each direction. The bike and pedestrian bridge that runs under the structure are also being replaced.
