Advisory: State Rep. Bob Rita joins officials to provide I-57/294 update Thursday morning

State Rep. Bob Rita will be joining officials with the Illinois Tollway and IDOT and other officials Thursday morning (tomorrow) at 11 a.m. to offer an update with local media on the important Interstate 57-294 interchange project going on right now in the south suburbs.

The event will be at the construction site in Posen. Directions from Chicago are below. I’ll send out a press release from Bob after the event. The Tollway has good info on its website about the project here:




Take the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) south.

Stay in the right lane and slow to 45 mph as you approach 147th Street.

Look for flagger and exit on the right shoulder into the construction site.

Continue under the I-57 bridge, veer to the right and continue to the parking area.
