(CHICAGO) This is the final weekend of closures on Chicago expressways as reconstruction of the Jane Byrne Circle Interchange picks up again today.

The outbound Eisenhower at the interchange will close at 10 this evening. Traffic can still access the I-90/94 ramps, but a detour will direct traffic to the outbound Dan Ryan and the 18th Street interchange to access the outbound Eisenhower via the inbound Ryan.

The inbound Kennedy between Ohio and Harrison will be reduced to one lane at 8 p.m. Saturday, but unlike the last three weekends, no full stops will be required. All inbound Kennedy lanes should be reopened by 10 a.m. Sunday. All lanes on all expressways will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

Here Nick Gale’s report for WLS News radio here:

The closures are necessary so steel beams can be installed to support the deck of the new flyover bridge linking the inbound Ryan to the outbound Eisenhower.

This is forth and final weekend of closures.
