Overturned semi on I-294 near O’Hare Oasis
The week got off to a slow start for thousands of drivers on the Tri-State tollway.
Traffic came to a stop after a semi-truck hauling plastic crashed on I-294 at Grand Avenue in Melrose Park this morning.
The truck was stretched across all four lanes and the shoulder of the northbound Tri-State for about 45 minutes before road crews were able to push it off to the side.
Traffic was backed up for about 10 miles from Grand Avenue all the way to Ogden Avenue in Western Springs.
