banner-traffic-change

I-88 exit ramp work will continue through August 2018.

The Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (ISTHA) is resurfacing the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) from Sugar Grove to Rochelle. This project includes rehabilitation of ramps and bridges, which will require intermittent closures at the Annie Glidden Road and Peace Road interchanges. This may affect your drive to campus if you follow our directions to DeKalb.

Accessing Annie Glidden Road from I-88

In general, traffic coming to NIU via I-88 will need to use the Peace Road interchange between Monday, May 14, and Monday, Aug. 6.

Accessing I-88 from Annie Glidden Road

Traffic leaving NIU on I-88 will need to use the Peace Road interchange:

  • Westbound: Monday, April 2, through Thursday, May 10
  • Eastbound: Monday, May 14, through Monday, Aug. 6

All ramps will be open for Spring Commencement from Friday, May 11, through Sunday, May 13.

Work on the Peace Road ramps is scheduled to take place from early July through late August in coordination with the Annie Glidden Road ramp work. Please watch road signs for detour information.

ISTHA has coordinated with the City of DeKalb to establish a detour route between Annie Glidden Road and Peace Road via Lincoln Highway (IL-38).

This project is fully managed and funded by the ISTHA. The City of DeKalb has no authority over project planning or scheduling of work.
