Traffic Near O'Hare

Last time I did the trip to O'Hare was in September of this year. Traffic on I-190 and all around the airport was BAD. Took me 2.5 hours to get to O Hare via I-90 from downtown Chicago.

How is traffic around the airport these days? Is it still as bad as it was this past September?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Today yes. There is a super secret way in though that avoids the expressway entrance.

Don'y even think about it today, as everyone will be traveling. Just have plenty of music in your Ipod ready as you will be sitting for a long time.

Why would you take irving straight down and sit in the city traffic all the way to manhiem when you can take montrose or even better sunnyside down bypassing 90/94 traffic and 6 corners(your suggestion is the same route tho I avoid the traffic I have dealt with for 15 years). What worse is irving park thru shiller park that can also be bypassed by taking lawrence right into manhiem.

I will agree that Irving is terrible during rush hour. It is quicker to take 90/94 than Irving to get to Ohare some days . There are too many idiots and buses that slow the street up.

I assure you, today will be worse . I remember a few years ago, I was driving home on LSD, the day before Thanksgiving, with very similar shitty weather. A couple of stop lights went out on LSD and you would have thought someone nuked downtown Chicago . I left work at 4:30PM, got to the southside of Chicago at 10:15PM . I didn't want to drive anywhere for a week after that experience. Just pray that the weather doesn't get worse and that the traffic controls continue to work, or you could be sleeping in your car .

Good luck getting to O'Hare. You will hit a shit load of traffic getting off 90 to get to the airport.

Best way to do it is to drive to the Cumberland blue line stop and hop on the L to the airport, pick up or drop of whoever it is, then come back.

You will avoid a lot of heart ache with the airport traffic and parking etc.

Okay Listen up.

Forget Irving and the expressway exit. Use Montrose or Bryn Mawr Get to Mannheim. Take it towards Higgins about 1/4 south of Higgins you will see a blue airport sign that will have on it Terminal 5 International. Turn in there this is the back Taxi turn around and Hotel shuttle entrance. Do you think they sit in the expressway nightmare? This will take you to all terminals.

my commute to work this morning was surprisingly fast, even for a regular day, going down 294 to 88E. im bracing for the worst. i just heard cops are also standing at some intersections (like those ppl selling candy n stuff) and come UP TO your car and ticket you for talking on the cell phone, no seat belt, etc...watch out guys!
