Dan Ryan Reconstruction

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Illinois Department of Transportation is warning Chicago area commuters who use the Dan Ryan Expressway that today is the day to start trying alternative routes.

The warmer weather has the agency back on track for the final phase of the Dan Ryan reconstruction, and massive delays are expected.

Beginning today, the expressway's inbound local lanes are closed from 71st Street through 31st Street, restricting drivers to the express lanes.

Additionally, outbound local lane closures are expected to begin as early as Thursday.
