I haven't driven in Chicago for years, but that certainly confused me when I was looking at Google Maps several weeks ago.

Also, I-380 is in Iowa.   ;-)

Whoops, my typo has been corrected, many thanks for pointing it out! (I blame the wind chill for it  :bigass: )

ChiMilNet:
I will definitely be curious to see this is when I drive through it next time. Just curious, has anyone had a chance to check if it has helped with the inbound traffic on the Kennedy. The backup at the Burne Interchange would cascade several miles onto the Kennedy, so it would be nice to possibly have that moving a little better. Either way, glad this is finally done!

The holidays/recent bad weather is giving me likely false "usual" traffic with many people staying home/off when I look at it around 5pm. But last Wed IB Kennedy traffic was flowing freely.

Wait until after the new year (January 3rd). December is unreliable for getting usual peak traffic.

I donít know if I recall a time during my years in Chicago if I encountered a free flowing Kennedy Expressway between 5 AM-9 PM.
