[DML] Re: Chicago Show '06 (construction and alternate routes)

Chris and others,

I mentioned this back on April 10th, in post 62536, which also
was a repeat construction warning post from March, post 61894.

Similar details were also repeated in several "Caravan to DCS"
posts in the last few months, most of them with construction
isssues addressed.  Unlike the night-time only construction in
California and other states, Illinois construction can run day
and night, especially in the higher profile construction zones
like the Dan Ryan project from Chicago to the Indiana border.

As mentioned before, the Dan Ryan project should not directly
impact travel to DCS 2006, since the route would be way out of
your way when trying to get to Pheasant Run Resort.  Indirect
impacts include the other expressways taking up alternate route
traffic from the Dan Ryan, which may cause other traffic delays
in other smaller construction zones on the way to Pheasant Run.

One such route is I-294 North from I-80, which is a main route
that most folks East of the Illinois/Indiana border will take
to Pheasant Run.  I-294 North from I-80 does have several small
construction zones around the Toll Plazas until just past the
I-88 exits, as I-294 meets up with I-290.  If possible, do not
plan to traverse this route during morning or evening rush hour.

For more details on suggested routes to Pheasant Run Resort,
check the "Getting to DCS 2006" links and pages on the DMC club
website: www.deloreanmidwest.com   I hope to have some specific
mile marker construction info listed after Memorial Day weekend.

pretty sure most of us will be using this route!

>   CHICAGO (AP) - Drivers on the Dan Ryan Expressway beware. New 
photo-enforcement vans on the expressway have started nabbing 
speeders, and violators will soon begin receiving 375 dollar tickets 
in the mail. The Illinois State Police is putting in the radar vans 
on the Chicago expressway -- which is currently undergoing a $600 
(m) million dollar reconstruction.

and the speed the vehicle was traveling at the time.The speed limit 
in the Dan Ryan construction zone is 45 miles-per-hour, but the 
photo enforcement vans are being used only when construction workers 
are present.
