The purpose of the information sessions is to offer all interested parties an opportunity to comment on the I-80/I-94 corridor between Illinois 394 in Cook County, IL and I-65 in Lake County, Indiana. A variety of Transportation System Management Operations (TSMO) strategies are under consideration including temporary use of shoulders, variable speed limits and ramp metering. The project is in the planning phase and is being developed through the Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) process. Detailed environmental studies would be completed during preliminary design if the project moves forward.
