Crews were planning to shut down the Kennedy near Ontario for three weekends in June for demolition of the Ontario bridge that runs over the Kennedy. However, crews were able to complete their work way ahead of schedule on Saturday and IDOT has revised the construction schedule to just two weekends, June 13-16 & June 20-23 (weather pending).
Kennedy construction underway, no major delays yet.
Northbound traffic not bad, but southbound cars being forced off expressway around construction at the Ohio Street exit
Here’s a current look at the traffic:
As of 9:30p.m. Saturday the two inbound lanes are back open on the Kennedy expressway. The Ohio feeder ramp remains closed.—
