The Illinois Dept. of Transportation presents new concepts for improving the Eisenhower Expressway Wednesday.

State highway design engineers are working on long-term solutions to reduce gridlock and crashes.

The analysis comes from dozens of ideas generated mostly by the public. Possible solutions include widening the Eisenhower to four lanes in each direction for the entire length of the highway.
