Major Traffic Alert: Full Weekend Closures of I-90/94 (Kennedy Expressway), Ohio/Ontario Feeder Ramps

Taste of Randolph has an important announcement regarding construction in the area near the event site that will effect transportation:

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) reminds motorists that weather permitting, demolition of the westbound Ontario Street Bridge to eastbound I-90/94 over I-90/94 (Kennedy Expressway), will begin Friday, June 13, 2014.

This large-scale demolition will occur over the course of three separate weekends. Due to the type of bridge, a three-unit, eight-span, concrete structure with the supporting columns constructed integral into the bridge, it cannot be disassembled in pieces, but rather must be removed one unit at a time. The demolition schedule is as follows:

10PM Friday 6/13/2014 – 5AM Monday 6/116/2014 – Closure of eastbound I-90/94 and Eastbound (EB) reversible lanes

Removal of first portion (unit 2 over EB I-90/94): EB Kennedy will be closed from Chicago to Grand and one lane in the westbound direction.  Beginning at Diversey, lanes of EB I-90/94 will be reduced to two lanes.  Traffic will be diverted from demolition site onto EB Ohio Street exit using temporary pavement back to I-90/94.

  • Exit onto Western Avenue as an alternative from I-90 to I-290
  • Lake Shore Drive remains open in both directions
  • I-55 and I-290 can be utilized by motorists traveling from the South and West sides of the city
