Chicago Road & Highway Information

What would an American city be without gridlock? With four main expressways and commuter rushes that last for hours, Chicago is as all-American as they get. If you’re traveling by car between 5:30 and 9:30 a.m. or 2:45 and 7:00 p.m., it might be helpful to check the local news stations for traffic updates or contact the organizations below for information on road conditions. Between the number of motorists, weather and construction, there’s no telling what you’ll run into on the highways, so it’s best to plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time to get to your final destination. Contact the organizations below before heading out to get current road condition info and to stay posted on other driving inconveniences.
