West Loop a Mess

I work in the west Loop off of Jackson, and it is PACKED with people. The commute home is going to be a bitch for some people.

Here are the details as to why...

I was wondering why I had to ride the brike in the Loop. I thought there was an accident.

I wonder what the Metra is going to be like? The crowd is walking right past Union Station. When I say crowd, I mean a SEE OF PEOPLE.

I'm guessing that there at LEAST 100,000 people on the streets. It is nuts at Jackson and Canal.
