Illinois[edit]

  • Illinois Tollway oases, multiple locations and Interstate Highways: Rest areas which extend over the Interstate Highway.[1] There are six oases, located on the Tri-State Tollway (I-80, I-94 and I-294), Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (Interstate 90 in Illinois) and the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88). The four on the Tri-State Tollway and the one on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway are built over the roadway, while the DeKalb Oasis on the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway is on the south side of the roadway. Customers are able to sit inside the oases and eat while traffic goes by beneath them. This type of development is common in the United Kingdom.
  • I-290 has a former U.S Post Office over it. The building existed first and was designed for a future road that was built in the 1950s as the Congress Expressway (now the Eisenhower Expressway). Google Street View
