I-55 & Weber Road Interchange

The reconstruction of the Weber Road and I-55 Interchange has begun. Utilities are being relocated. The contractors have been selected and began earth work and construction of temporary lanes. 

The goal of this project is to ease congestion by adding additional lanes of traffic on Weber Road from 135th Street to 119th Street and rebuilding the I-55 Interchange. 

In an effort to assist both businesses and residents through this project, the following pages provide useful information and contact information.

The new design is called a diverging diamond. To view a simulation of the completed project, click here.
