The Indiana Department of Transportation has commissioned a Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) study to determine how to apply the latest technologies to cost-effectively improve traffic on I-80/94 between Illinois 394 and I-65 so that drivers get less stop and more go.
Public meetings will be hosted in October 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.
