  • Interstate 290 is a main Interstate freeway that runs westwards from the Chicago Loop. The portion of I-290 from Interstate 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. Interstate 290 connects Interstate 90 in Rolling Meadows, Illinois with Interstate 90/Interstate 94 near the Loop. North of Interstate 355, the freeway is sometimes known locally as Illinois Route 53, or simply Route 53, since Illinois 53 existed before Interstate 290. However, it now merges with I-290 at Biesterfield Road. In total, Interstate 290 is 29.84 miles long.
