Snow Removal Impacts Kennedy Express Lanes Schedule

CHICAGO - The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that because of the heavy snowfall this morning, the Kennedy Expressway (Interstate 90/94) express lanes will remain in the inbound direction until late this evening.

The express lanes currently are scheduled to be closed at 9 p.m. tonight so snow removal can take place on the lanes, shoulders, ramps and gates. The lanes will reopen in the inbound direction by 5 a.m. Saturday, when the normal schedule for the Kennedy reversible system will resume.
