So if you’re thinking about hopping on the Dan Ryan (90/94 South out of Chicago) in the near future…don’t. It’s a simple as that. At least, not until 2008. Chicagoist reported that the Dan Ryan is undergoing repairs (including shutting down half of the lanes) to improve capacity.
In other words…a six-eight lane highway that is currently handling double it’s intended capacity will be cut in half for two years in order to ultimately increase the capacity. Joy.

On a side note, did you realize that Chicago has some of the best tap water in the country?!
