In 2006 and 2007, Illinois 394 was reconstructed north of Glenwood–Dyer Road as part of the massive Kingery Expressway reconstruction effort. The intersection with Interstates 80, 94 and 294 was improved in the following areas:
Southbound: The ramps were rebuilt, with a gentler left-exit curve for Interstate 94 to travel from the Bishop Ford to the Kingery Expressway. The cloverleaf-style ramps to southbound Illinois 394 were replaced with a flyover and the distributor leg of a collector-distributor ramp from eastbound Interstate 80/294.
Northbound: A dangerous ramp to eastbound Interstate 80/94 was replaced with a ramp to a set of collector-distributor lanes, intended for U.S. 6 and Illinois 83 (Torrence Avenue). A cloverleaf ramp from eastbound Interstate 80/294 was replaced with a flyover, and the merge area where Illinois 394 terminates was improved. (The Interstate 94 ramp itself has been moved nearly a mile (1.6 km) east to before Torrence Avenue). These improvements were completed in June 2007.
