N.E. NASR Attendees

For the attendees that are coming from the N.E. & have to deal with Chicago. There are three main ways through Chicago. From the Indiana / Illinois state line to Galena, There is I294 to I90 to US20 = 190 miles, Or I294 to I88 to I39 to US20 = 204 miles, or I294 to I80 to I39 to US20 = 232 miles.Yesterday (Friday) I drove in using the I88 route & back out using the I90 route looking
for construction zones. I88 was clear of construction. I90 had 2 small zones around O'Hare airport. I don't know about the I80 construction? My suggestion would be to use the I88 route. Plan to hit the Indiana / Illinois state line from 11:00 to 1:00 central time & you should be able to cruse right through. Chicago is no different then any other big town except instead of maybe 20 mile to get through, the I88 route is 60 miles until you are out of town. All the expressways are 4 lanes so traffic move fairly good.



What ever you do, Be SAFE.

Chicago is no big deal. You just can't be timid.

I am planning to take I80 all the way across to I39 then head north from there.



We will be bringing the toy hauler and I prefer to avoid city traffic if at all possible.

I74 takes you to the Quad Cities, 15 years ago when I was driving a big truck, The warehouse that I was attached to was in Maquoketa, Ia. I traveled US 61 from Quad Cities to the North. At that time, it was one of the roughest roads I have been on. Hopefully in the last 15 years then repaved it.



You might consider when you get to Bloomington/Normal to take I39 North to US 20.??

Doug, That will get you away from the city by the quickest route. Once you get through Joliet, It opens up nicely.


According to Illinois IDOT, it looks like there is roughly 18 miles of construction around Joliet. Here is a link top Illinois IDOT
