Illinois is rebuilding the tollway (I-90) between Rockford and Elgin, but that does not stop them from charging tolls. If you have driven on the Tollway recently, you know that it is slow going, congested, and dangerous. The speed limit is 45 MPH all of the way from Rockford to Elgin. If there is an accident, you could be delayed for hours and miss your plane if you are going to O’Hare. Consider, an alternate route bypassing the Tollway and rejoining it at Elgin around Randall Road where the construction ends!
New law in Illinois effective July 1, 2013. No court supervision if you are receive a speeding ticket for speeding more than 30 miles per hour (mph) over the posted limit on highways or 25 mph in urban areas.
