An Illinois Tollway committee on Wednesday approved nearly $170 million for engineering consulting contracts to prepare for work to rebuild and widen the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway and build the new Elgin-O’Hare West Bypass.

The largest single contract, $66.8 million, would go to Colorado-based CH2M HILL Inc., for corridor management and design services for the proposed O’Hare project.

All the contracts need final approval from the tollway board, which meets April 26.
