DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Tollway is putting the finishing touches on 37-mile rebuilding project between Rockford and Elgin.

Tollway officials say reconstruction of the western segment of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway will be finished on Tuesday and the speed limit will return to 65 mph. Tollway officials say traffic will flow in both directions on three new lanes by Tuesday morning.

The project took two years and included widening the roadway. Work to rebuild and widen Interstate 90 between Elgin and Interstate 294 will begin next spring and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016.

By Tuesday morning, all traffic will be travelling on three new lanes of pavement in both directions of I-90 between I-39 in Rockford and the Elgin Toll Plaza.
