2nd Phase of Balmoral Interchange Makes O'Hare Access Easier
Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens today announced that the second stage of the Balmoral Avenue extension is now officially open.
The opening of the tunnel under Mannheim Road means that motorists driving southbound on Mannheim Road from O’Hare Airport and the north suburbs, will be able to quickly and easily access Balmoral Avenue and all of Rosemont's hotels, restaurants and shopping areas.
“This project has been a long time in the making but it is finally a reality and motorists who need to access Rosemont’s many attractions will be able to get to them from any direction,” Mayor Stephens said. “This road improvement will mean better traffic flow into and out of O’Hare for thousands of vehicles that access Rosemont.”
With several million cars now using the Balmoral ramp every year to access Rosemont's entertainment district, MB Financial Park, Rosemont Theatre, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Fashion Outlets of Chicago, and numerous hotels and restaurants, it’s expected those traveling to and from O'Hare will use the Balmoral extensions to avoid traffic delays.
