Route help... (western burbs)

What's the fastest/best route to take coming from Weber & 55 going to 55 and County Line Rd?? My sis-in-law just moved out there and she says 55 is a nightmare everytime she drives to/from work... thanks in advance...

Um , back road through Lock port IL 171 is what i take to work now with Summer traffic/construction

or Romeoville IL 53 back way to 55 at least gets her past 126, 30 weber back ups where it all starts to suck...

Where is she exactly coming from in the mornings?

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Try a helicopter.

Seriously, there's no good way. I can make it to work in 15 mins on a saturday. 45 mins each way during rush hour.

Joliet to bolingbrook

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

It all depends what time of day you are trying to go from webber to countyline. North bound traffic generally sucks between 3:30 to 5:30. It backs up to a crawl between 355 and 294. South bound traffic from countyline to Webber isnt too bad even in rush hour. It slows up from countyline to Cass then picks up again untill rt 53 from about 3 untill 5:30-6:00. I make about 2-3 trips a day from the Burr ridge area to bolingbrook/plainfield/romeoville during rush hour traffic. Its not that bad once you get used to it although I wouldn't want to get stuck in it on a bike in the hot sun.

It takes me two hours to get from Channahon to Itasca leaving at 6:30am. I get on I-55 North at Bluff Rd, then it's stop and roll at Rt30 until I-355 so I've been getting off at Rt53 to 63rd then get onto 355N to Thorndale. Today was just under two hours.

Going to work wasn't as bad when we first moved during winter. I figured now that it's warmer and school is out, it would get better.... WRONG. It's almost 2x as bad and I really don't hit any construction.

That whole area grew way too quickly. Weber and 55 is a joke. Getting onto 55 south from 355 is rediculous. I just take Boughton to 53 to Lily Cache to Weber.
