Does this gate in the median open up during sporting events at Soldier Field? Iím noticing the permissive tower signal head going SB on US 41 here?

Not to mention this guide sign.

The stoplight in the SB lanes and the guide sign certainly do suggest that it does open, or at least has in the past, but I've never personally seen it open.

At some point I think it did, but traffic was probably more abysmal then it is now. So Waldron is apparently a NB entrance/exit only during Soldier Field events. Like NWI, I've never seen it open for SB lanes but I'm sure 20-30 years ago it was.

Revive 755:
The second public meeting for US 20 at Shales Parkway in Elgin is scheduled for November 16.

Is IL in the business of using blue pentagon shield like the one on the signal pole in GSV above?

See the Illinois stuff I added to the thread in General Highway Talk about the different states' use of the county pentagons:


--- Quote from: paulthemapguy on October 26, 2020, 10:01:30 AM ---Illinois counties that use the blue pentagon include Winnebago, McHenry, Lake, DuPage, Kane (inconsistently), DeKalb (starting recently), Kendall (starting last year), Kankakee, Iroquois, Livingston, McLean, Logan, Macon, McDonough, Knox, Peoria, Woodford, LaSalle, Bureau, Rock Island (who uses letters instead of numbers like Wisconsin), Henry, St. Clair, Sangamon, Champaign, Vermilion, Piatt, Douglas, Coles, Edgar, Fayette, Effingham, Clinton, Christian, Cumberland, Mason, Menard and DeWitt.  See Bill Burmaster's page.

(Clay County uses the white square like some places in Minnesota.)
Edit: Forgot to mention Warren, and forgot to mention Cook (sporadically).

To add, Will County will start putting up pentagons all over its county highways later this fall, likely carrying forward into spring.  Kendall County put pentagons up starting around 2019.  DeKalb is another county that started using them fairly recently, but the numerals are written in Helvetica.
