I-55 / Lake Shore Drive Flyover

Inbound Bridges From I-94 to US 41 (Lake Shore Drive)



This $60 million improvement of the I-55 (Stevenson Expressway) Inbound Bridges from I-94 (Dan Ryan Expressway) to US 41 (Lake Shore Drive) includes the removal, replacement, widening and reconstruction of the existing three inbound bridge structures located within the I-55 and US 41 Interchange in the City of Chicago.

The project spans over Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and the Metra & CN Railroad corridor. The work also includes roadway lighting, surveillance and camera installation, overhead signing, interstate signing and pavement reconstruction within the project limits using 9.75 inch PCC jointed pavement and shoulders. Three new concrete mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls will be constructed adjacent to the bridge locations and landscaping will be provided within the interchange areas.
