Road Week Ahead: May 5 – May 9

Here’s what’s on tap for Lake County commuters this week: Ongoing construction and chilly rainy days, but we’re one week closer to the completion of the Tri-State Rebuild and Widen project!

Monday’s temporary lane closures on the North Tri-State Tollway:

  • One northbound lane will be closed between the Des Plaines River and O’Plaine Road from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • One southbound lane will be closed near Old Route 41 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • One northbound lane will be closed at Route 120 from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Stay up-to-date with the Lake County DOT roadwork update report and Illinois DOT construction update report.

Interstate 94 weather report: No snow in the forecast, just rain for Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. The week starts warm with temps in the 70s, but prepare for the April-like 50’s to return.

Tow business: I recently blogged about a legendary Chicago vehicle relocator known for “tow[ing] them away”. This Monday night, Fox News Chicago will air a segment about a company that allegedly towed cars inappropriately. I don’t know if the towing service from my recent post is the company being discussed, but it will be interesting to find out who it is. The segment will air during the 9 p.m. newscast.

Saturday, May 10 is scheduled for Amtrak’s first-ever National Train Day. Events are planned for locations across the country, including Chicago’s Union Station. Railfans and regular riders alike may enjoy the opportunity to celebrate and learn more about trains.
