EISENHOWER EXPESSWAY CONGESTION

CAT Home†††† Photo Index

Congestion will still occur, even with managed lanes.†

 

Congestion now occurs about 17 hours on a weekday on the six-lane section of the expressway and 14 hours on a weekday on the eight-lane section.† IDOTís Build Alternatives will not do much to reduce congestion on the General Purpose lanes.† Even a minor incident will cause stop-and-go traffic conditions when conditions are similar to those shown in the photograph.†
