Kennedy drivers beware: Closures coming weekends in June

road1As if the delays and slowdowns aren’t enough, now comes word from Illinois Department of Transportation that this summer drivers can expect closures on the expressway.
Kennedy Drivers beware. The Ontario ramp work is going to affect a lot of people on the road this June.
Come the weekend of June 13, IDOT plans to demolish the bridge and shut down the Kennedy for days at a time.
Starting that weekend , there will be full closure of the in-bound Kennedy from Chicago Avenue to Grand Avenue with no access to the Express Lanes. It all opens up again at 5am that Monday.
But the weekend of the 20th, more headaches only on the outbound side this time. And reversible lanes are closed again until 5am Monday the 23rd.
On Friday, June 27 at 10 p.m., don’t bother with the in-bound Kennedy exit to the Ohio Street ramp — it’s the next one to go. Reversible will be open but backups during all the closures could be killer for drivers trying to get anywhere.
