Des Plaines Oasis to Close March 16th-- Part 2

Last fall, Tollway officials announced the need to close the Des Plaines Oasis to make room for a $2-billion plus I-90 reconstruction program that calls for the addition of a fourth lane in each direction. //// The project is needed to ease some huge congestion along the road in that area and to accomoddate up to 30,000 additional vehicles. The whole project is expected to cost $3.4 billion and completed by 2025. //// As part of the demolition process, the Tollway agreed to pay $9.3 million in termination costs to SFI Chicago Tollway LLC, which leases and operates all seven oases in the Illinois Toll System. //// --RoadDog
