Eisenhower ramps may be revamped
June 11, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A couple left-lane ramps on the Eisenhower Expressway may move to the right under a plan to improve safety access to the Ike at Austin and Harlem.
An Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman tells the Chicago Tribune that left side ramps have a 49 percent higher rate of crashes than right-side ramps.
The eight-mile stretch of i-290 between Mannheim Rd. and Cicero Ave. has 2,000 crashes a year.
