Anyone on here in the Chicago area? I'll be headed to Lake Forest IL in a few weeks -- I'd like some "navigation help" to avoid MAJOR nightmare intersections . I'll be coming north from the Indy area. Thnx, DOOF

I used to live 30 minutes from Chicago and we went up there a lot. So it depends on what day and what time your passing thru. Going thru the city during the rush hour can add a extra hour to your trip. Middle of the day and weekends its not to bad. You can also take the 294 toll road around the city and add 10 miles to the trip but the traffic not quite as bad. If you don't have an Ipass sometimes the toll booths are backed up. Any way you look at its a Crap Shoot. Good Luck

I commute from northwest indiana to ohare 4 days a week. Time of day is huge player when it comes to traffic. Friday out of the city and Sunday into the city traffic can suck in northwest indiana due to everyone headed to michigan. S/B 294 is wide open in the morning from ohare and north bound sucks after 7 til about 9. It swaps in the evenings starting at 3pm. Thru the city is always risky unless at night before 5am and not on the weekends. Also if your going to use the tolls and have no ipass/ez pass watch out for the weekends. The cash lines get really long. Any other questions just ask.
