Directions and Traffic Information
When planning your trip to Route 66 Raceway, please be aware of several on-going highway and interstate construction projects that may impact your travel. Plan accordingly to either seek and alternate route or provide yourself with additional time given the delays from construction.
I-55 Near Arsenal Road: Bridge deck overlay and joint repair for the structure carrying I-55 (1,700 feet north of its intersection with Arsenal Road bridge) and extends in a northerly direction along the centerline of Interstate 55 over the Des Plaines River in Channahon. I-55 has experienced extensive delays, particularly northbound.
Between I-80 and IL-53: Traffic signal modernization for the intersection of IL 53 and Laraway Road in Joliet. If possible, avoid IL-53 between Route 66 Raceway and I-80.
