Barrington Road Interchange Construction – November 30, 2017
The contractor has completed the majority of pavement striping on Barrington Road. The signal contractor is working at the Barrington Road / Hassell Road intersection which will require periodic lane closures. Construction remains to be done for the path to be located on the west side of Barrington Road between Hassell Road and Higgins Road. The Tollway contractor has one southbound lane on Barrington Road closed for work at the Hassell Road intersection. Additional work will be done at the signals on the bridge. And some roadway work remains for the westbound exit from I-90 to Barrington Road. The contractor also has sidewalk and path work to do along with backfilling operations.
Travel delays can be expected at times related to lane closures. When travelling through the construction area, please allow extra time and use caution, as lane shifts and closures may change from day to day.

Barrington Road Interchange and Pace Transit Facilities
All Ramps are Open
The Tollway has opened all ramps at the interchange. Some roadway work remains on the westbound exit ramp so please use caution. Tolling is active on all ramps at Barrington Road. Cars with I-PASS pay 45 cents while the cash rate is 90 cents for cars. Trucks tolls range from $1.50 to $4.00 during daytime hours, with overnight discounts offered. Those without I-PASS can pay their tolls online at the cash rate within the seven-day grace period.
Transit Components of the Barrington Road Interchange
In addition to the sidewalk and bicycle path being constructed with the interchange, the Village partnered with Pace and the Illinois Tollway to incorporate new transit facilities into the interchange construction. Pace is building a new Park-n-Ride / Kiss-n-Ride to support the new express bus stops on I-90 just east of Barrington Road. Construction is complete for the new pedestrian bridge over I-90 to link the express bus stops on the north and south sides of I-90.
Pace is building the Park-n-Ride facility on the north side of I-90 near the Hilton Garden Inn. Access to the station parking will be from Central Road. The contractor has completed some of the paving on Central Road needed for the connection to the Park-n-Ride. Construction of the parking and bus areas on the north side of the Tollway is underway. The Kiss-n-Ride construction will follow the Park-n-Ride.
Pedestrian access to these transit areas from Barrington Road is being installed as part of the interchange work. To link the transit stops on I-90 with the parking and drop-off areas, pedestrian access under the ramps on the east side of the interchange was completed with the interchange. Pedestrians will walk at grade to the bus station with the ramps passing over the top of the pedestrian way. The Pace pedestrian overpass will not open until express bus service at Barrington Road starts on I-90. Pace's goal is to have all their facilities open in 2018 to service expanded express bus routes on I-90.
Information on Pace’s I-90 services can be found here.
Pace will be introducing new express bus service to provide non-stop trips from the Barrington Road station to the CTA Blue Line in Rosemont and the Northwest Transportation Center in Schaumburg. Weekday and Saturday service is planned affording access to O’Hare, downtown Chicago. They also plan to provide connecting service for the area around the Barrington Road / I-90 express bus stations. More information on schedules and operating hours will be provided by Pace closer to the start-up of the new I-90 services at Barrington Road.
