The Dan Ryan Expressway is, or was, the busiest stretch of road in Chicagoland. They've decided it needs to be torn up, resurfaced, and given extra lanes along a lot of its length. So they've got it half-closed. It went from 6 lanes in either direction to 3 lanes in either direction. They're predicting 2 years before it's all fixed up.
Eerie empty lanes.
A long arterial line
Clamped for surgery.
Given the mighty mess it makes
I hope 2 years is all it takes.
