Chicago Skyway/I-90 Photos
« on: August 26, 2017, 10:15:56 PM »

Drove the Chicago Skyway for the first time in 16 years today. Suffice to say that it was substantially improved since that time, odd that the speed limit is still 45/55 MPH:

Kinda sucks that the McDonald's is long gone, but oh well.

I'm never wrong, just wildly inaccurate.

The E-ZPass Express lanes are a total crock.  You see it, think oh, must be the no-stopping kind of thing if it's an Express toll lane that they shunt off to the left.  Nope, it's the same thing with stopping for a gate.  What a waste.

And for that, we had to tear down the McDonald's?  Bleah!

And I was wondering what happened to that McDonalds....   I was looking forward to a quick stop for a breakfast sandwich after I ran downtown Chicago too.

I almost took out a gate in IN in one of the 15 MPH EZ-pass only lanes in IN I was thinking it was like IL and it would be gate free. Just to go gate!!!! and slam on the brakes.

It doesn't help that the ones on the ITR are white either.
