Illinois tolls going up

Illinois roads are some of the nations worst along with one of the highest gas taxes of any state.

 

I would invite you to drive I90 between Madison and O'Hare Airport some time. The four lanes in Wisconsin are in horrid shape and way over capacity. In the Janesville/Beloit area, serious accidents are almost a weekly occurrence. (There is a plan to widen the road to six lanes, but the schedule just been pushed back because of budget cuts - completion is at least 5 years away.)

 

Cross into Illinois and you've got a well-engineered, well-maintained tollway, 6 or 8 lanes the whole way.

 

I39 (non-tollway) between Rockford and Bloomington is also in excellent shape. The northern third was just resurfaced this year. There's a lot of truck traffic, but it moves well.

 

RVTEN is correct though - you don't want to use the tollway oases for anything other than biology breaks.

Thanks for the update on I-90 out of O'Hare as Dec 1 there was still lots of Construction. I agree with the Wisconsin side but that is non Tollway and like many non Tollway Illinois they are overloaded just like I-90 Tollway was a couple years ago before reconstruction.

But when did you last travel I-39, for the age of that highway the right lanes are horrible.
