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.
