Interstate 90 I in the U. From the Wisconsin state line at South Beloitit heads south to Rockford before heading east-southeast to the Indiana state line at Chicago. I comprises several named highways. The remainder of the highway is maintained by the Illinois Department of Transportation. I enters from Beloit, Wisconsinwith I The two Interstates run concurrently south to Rockfordwhere I continues as a freeway south to Bloomington — Normal. I continues east-southeast to Belvidere and Elgin on the way through the Chicago area.
This unique rest stop provides several vendors and allows tollway travelers to rest, refuel, and eat without having to exit the tollway. Another oasis was previously sited in Des Plaines near O'Hare, but it was closed and demolished in to make room for the widening of I and the O'Hare West Bypass.
I passes north of O'Hare International Airportwhere I branches west to the airport terminals. I also meets I at this junction with I I continues southeast and is later joined with eastbound I ; westbound I runs on the Edens Expressway. I and I then head toward the Loopintersecting the eastern end of I South of I, the highway is given the name of the Dan Ryan Expressway.
I then runs directly southeast to the Indiana state line, and becomes the Indiana Toll Road at the state line. This construction started in and was completed by the end of The route designations were changed to their present form when I was moved to follow the entire length of the Kennedy Expressway and the Jane Addams Tollway, and the original route was designated I The oasis was closed as of August The Chicago Skyway was originally known as the Calumet Skyway.
There are only two eastbound exits east of the toll barrier, whereas there are four westbound exits west of the toll barrier so that no exits are available until one has crossed the bridge and paid the toll.
The Chicago Skyway opened to traffic on April 16, The Skyway's official name, referring to it as a "toll bridge" rather than a "toll road", is the result of a legal quirk. At the time of its construction, the city charter of Chicago did not provide the authority to construct a toll road. However, the city could build toll bridges, and it was found that there was no limit to the length of the approaches to the bridge.
Therefore, the Skyway is technically a toll bridge with a six-mile-long 9. This also is part of the reason that there are no exits available until after one has crossed the bridge and paid the toll. Historically, the Chicago Skyway was signed as, and was widely considered to be part of, I from the mids forward after I in this area had been swapped with I However, aroundthe City of Chicago realized they had never received official approval to designate the Skyway as I In the s, the newly constructed Dan Ryan Expressway and the neighboring Calumet ExpresswayKingery Expressway and Borman Expressway provided free alternatives to the tollway, and the Skyway became much less used.
As a result, from the s through the early s, the Skyway was unable to repay revenue bonds used in its construction. The agreement between SCC and the city of Chicago marked the first time an existing toll road was moved from public to private operation in the United States.
I has two related auxiliary Interstate Highways within Illinois. I takes a southwesterly dogleg left route accessing the western suburbs and heading eastward into downtown Chicago. It is also known as the Dwight D. Eisenhower Expressway. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
This article is about the section of Interstate 90 in Illinois.Interstate The freeway traverses several mountain passes along the northern tier and can be closed during extreme storms during the winter months. I combines with I east across southern Wisconsin. The two merge at a rural exchange outside the city of Tomah and lead 63 miles east to Wisconsin Dells and I south of Portage.
I joins the two routes south 29 miles to the capital city of Madison, where Interstate 94 branches east toward Milwaukee. East from Rockford, Illinois to Boston, Massachusetts the majority of Interstate 90 follows toll roads.
Some sections of these toll roads predated the Interstate Highway Act. They separate there with I staying on the toll road south of Cleveland and I winding northeast through Sheffield and Avon toward Downtown Cleveland. The toll road extends northeast to Buffalo, where I becomes a toll free route through the urban area. I loops east from the Thruway mainline through Albany, reconnecting with the toll road on the Berkshire Section linking I with the Massachusetts State line. From Seattle east to Billings, Interstate 90 replaced U.
At Wall, I replaced U. From Tomah southeast to Chicago, Interstate 90 more or less follows U. I and U. A partnership between the Washington State Department of Transportation WSDOT and several conservation groups to invest in wildlife corridors and protected habitats for species native to the Cascade Mountains resulted from the project to expand capacity along Interstate 90 between Hyak and Eaton.
These wildlife structures allow for continuous range for a variety of animals that may migrate over the freeway. For more information on the wildlife overpasses, visit Interstate 90 Wildlife Bridges. Wrapping up in Fallthis work involved adding a new lane per direction, bridge and culvert replacement, pavement replacement and improving sharp curves.
Future work on Phase III, scheduled for construction between Summer and Fallimproves the easternmost six miles of the project area with widening, pavement replacement and truck climbing lanes.
Phase IV follows from Summer to Fall It adds an additional lane per direction, replaces the concrete pavement, adds wildlife crossings and a chain-up area, and straightens portions of the roadway. Road work finished in realigned a portion of the freeway near Blackhawk, consolidating a split interchange with Sturgis Road old U. Further southeast, the tri-level stack interchange between I and I was redesigned into a trumpet interchange, removing left-hand ramps along westbound.
Further east at Exit 60, the wye interchange from I west to U.Interstate 90 I is an east—west transcontinental freewayand the longest Interstate Highway in the United States at 3, East of that border, much of I follows several toll roadsmany of which predate the Interstate Highway system. The Interstate is not tolled through some segments in downtown Chicago ; Greater Cleveland and the rest of Northeast Ohio ; Erie and the rest of Northwestern Pennsylvania ; and through brief sections near Buffalo and Albany.
The western I terminus is in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. The east portal of the tunnel visible when entering Seattle from the east is constructed as a bas relief concrete sculpture. I incorporates two of the longest floating bridges in the world, the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge and the Homer M. They are the second and fifth longest such bridges, respectively.
It intersects I shortly after exiting the mountains and crosses the Columbia River on the Vantage Bridge at mile post SinceI from Seattle to Thorp was designated the Mountains to Sound Greenway to protect its outstanding scenic and cultural resources. The small town of Wallace still prides itself on having what was the last stop light in the Rocky Mountains on I Its downtown has many historical buildings that would have been wiped out by the original planned route of the freeway, so incity leaders had the downtown placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
As a result, the federal government was forced, at great expense, to reroute the freeway to the northern edge of downtown and elevate it. That section of I opened in September A bicycle path is routed beneath part of that segment.

In the period between andthere was no numbered speed limit on I in Montana. The speed limit was simply defined as "reasonable and prudent" as determined on a case-by-case basis by the Montana Highway Patrol. From the west I enters Montana on the summit of Lookout Pass. It follows the Yellowstone River from Livingston to Billings where it connects the suburbs of Laurel and Lockwood with the rest of the Billings area.
In Lockwood it intersects with I's western terminus and turns south. I enters the state of Wyoming from the north after splitting off from I in Billings, Montana. The first major town is Sheridan where it heads southbound. It then follows the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains between Sheridan and Buffalo where it then intersects with Iwhere the route goes from a north—south orientation to an east—west orientation.
Near Rapid City at the Wyoming border I is a four-lane divided highway with a grass median. I is the longest east—west thoroughfare in South Dakota.
It does not go through the state capital of Pierre. On most of its length in the state, it is close to the Iowa border and fairly parallel with it. In southeast Minnesotait curves north to Rochester and Winona. The wayside rest area near Blue Earth, Minnesota is where Minnesota's east-building and west-building I teams linked up inthus completing the final mile of the Minnesota section and symbolically joining the 3, The route uses French Island for part of its ford over the Mississippi.
Just upstream from the bridge is Lock and Dam No. I crosses Wisconsin from Minnesota to Illinois in a generally southeasterly direction. It joins I in Tomah and I in Portage. I separates from I at Madison. I enters Illinois north of Rockford oriented north—south joined with I It then runs east-southeast directly to the city of Chicago. I continues running south of the Loop on part of the Dan Ryan Expresswayand then southeast onto the tolled Chicago Skyway into Indiana.
I enters from Illinois at the Chicago Skyway. It also passes north of Angola at I I follows the Ohio Turnpike until just south of Lorainwest of Clevelandwhere it turns north to follow a route near the shores of Lake Erie.I intersects several of the state's other major highways, including I-5 in Seattle, I and U. I is the only Interstate to cross the state from west to east, and the only one to connect the state's two largest cities, Seattle and Spokane.
It incorporates two of the longest floating bridges in the world, the Lacey V.
Murrow Memorial Bridge and the Homer M. I crosses the Cascades at Snoqualmie Passone of the busiest mountain pass highways in the United States, and uses a series of viaducts and structures to navigate the terrain.
The freeway travels across various landscapes, including suburban bedroom communities in the Seattle metropolitan areaforests of the Cascade Range, and the high plains of the Columbia Plateau.
The crossing at Snoqualmie Pass was established as a wagon road in and incorporated into a cross-state auto trailknown as the Sunset Highwayin the early s. The section of I between Seattle and I in Bellevue was delayed for decades because of environmental concerns and lawsuits by local groups over the freeway's potential impact on nearby neighborhoods. A compromise agreement was reached by the federal, state, and local governments in to build a second floating bridge across Lake Washington and include extensive parks above tunneled sections of I, which were completed in the early s.
The new floating bridge opened in and carried bi-directional traffic while the original floating bridge was renovated.
The old bridge's center pontoons sank during a November windstorm due to a contractor error and were rebuilt over the following three years, reopening to traffic on September 12,marking the completion of the transcontinental highway. I is maintained by the Washington State Department of Transportation WSDOTwho conduct an annual survey of traffic volume that is expressed in terms of average annual daily traffic AADTa measure of traffic volume for any average day of the year.
A section of I in Bellevue's Eastgate neighborhood carries a daily average ofvehicles, making it the highway's busiest. The freeway wraps around the north end of Beacon Hill and intersects Rainier Avenue at the site of the future Judkins Park light rail stationjoined by a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail that forms part of the Mountains to Sound Greenway.
Murrow Memorial Bridgewhile the westbound lanes, multi-use trail, and future light rail tracks are carried by the wider Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge. From the east end of the bridge, I continues onto Mercer Island and travels under the Mercer Island Lida landscaped park built atop a curved section of the freeway between West Mercer Way and 76th Avenue Northeast.
I travels to the south of Enatai and Beaux Arts Village and intersects Bellevue Way, where light rail tracks turn north away from the freeway, before crossing the Mercer Slough and its wetlands. The freeway travels along the north edge of downtown Issaquah, zig-zagging to the south and north to avoid the ridge of Issaquah Highlands and western Tiger Mountain. The freeway travels around the southern edge of North Bend and neighboring Tanner in the foothills of Rattlesnake Ridge.
I continues southeasterly along the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River into the Snoqualmie National Forestwhich also hosts several state parks and campgrounds. I continues in a southern arc around several mountains in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness while following the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River.
At the east end of the arc near the Asahel Curtis Picnic Area, the freeway's westbound and eastbound lanes are split by a wide median that includes the Denny Creek Campground. While Snoqualmie Pass does not have an annual closure like other passes in the Cascades, it does suffer from vehicle restrictions and occasional days-long shutdowns during the wintertime for avalanche control and clearing collisions.
The freeway travels across a series of hills while following the Ryegrass Coulee, including a rest area at Ryegrass Hill near the Wild Horse Wind Farm. The freeway then passes several scenic viewpoints for Lake Wanapum and the Wild Horse Monument a piece of public art placed atop a hill to the east.
