I-90 CORRIDOR SMART ROAD TECHNOLOGYThe Illinois Tollway has initiated SmartRoad technology on I-90 between Barrington Road and the Kennedy Expressway. Overhead lane control signals and message boards provide information on road and traffic conditions along with any cautions or restrictions on lane use. In addition, the left inside shoulder on I-90 is a “Flex Lane” which can be used like any other in an emergency. Plus Pace express buses will be allowed to travel in the Flex Lane when the regular lanes are congested. This project is a cooperative effort among primarily Pace, the RTA, and the Illinois Tollway to offer real time information to motorists in the I-90 corridor.
