High winds forced the Chicago Skyway to close in both directions from the Indiana state line to 91st Street around 3 a.m. due to high winds and flying construction debris.
The high winds ripped apart metal sheeting placed there by construction crews causing dangerous driving conditions.
A Wind Advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. for the entire Chicago area.
