The Illinois Tollway is reconstructing the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway Bridge, which carries the triple-track railroad over the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) between Hinsdale and Western Springs, to accommodate the widening of the Central Tri-State Tollway (I-294).  

In 2019, the Tollway will begin work to construct a bypass bridge that will allow for uninterrupted freight and commuter rail operations during bridge reconstruction.  Once the bypass bridge is complete, the main bridge will be rebuilt and lengthened. 

Work on the BNSF Railway Bridge is scheduled to continue through 2022.
