  • Interstate 290 is a main Interstate freeway that runs westwards from the Chicago Loop. The portion of I-290 from I-294 to its east end is officially called the Eisenhower Expressway. In short form, it is known as "the Ike" or the Eisenhower. Before being designated the Eisenhower Expressway, the highway was called the Congress Expressway because of the surface street that was located approximately in its path and onto which I-290 runs at its eastern terminus in the Chicago Loop. I-290 connects I-90 in Rolling Meadows with I-90/I-94 near the Loop. North of I-355, the freeway is sometimes known locally as Illinois Route 53, or simply Route 53, since IL 53 existed before I-290. However, it now merges with I-290 at Biesterfield Road. In total, I-290 is 29.84 miles long.
