Motorists Heading To Midway Airport Will Deal With Detours

CHICAGO (AP) – Motorists headed to Chicago’s Midway Airport should be ready for road construction delays.

Work starts Saturday on the busy interchange at Central Avenue and Interstate 55 so the ramps can be rebuilt.

That means motorists who use that route to get to Midway will have to deal with detours. City officials are warning travelers to factor in extra time to get to the airport. The ramps are expected to be closed for the next year.

The Illinois Department of Transportation recommends using the Cicero Avenue interchange to avoid the road construction.
