Lane closures on Dan Ryan Expressway this weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

South Siders lucky enough to attend Saturday night's Black Hawks game could find themselves locked in traffic on the outbound Dan Ryan Expressway if they wait too long to head home, the Sun-Times reports.

Starting an hour or so after the second game of the Stanley Cup Finals, two lanes of the outbound Ryan will close, on and off for several blocks to more than a mile at a stretch, between 39th and 96th Street, Illinois Department of Transportation officials said Friday.

Lane closures will affect both inbound and outbound Ryan traffic over night all weekend long. Some closures will start with one-lane shutdowns and expand to two-lanes as the evening wears on, then will be reversed gradually.

From one to two lanes in each direction will be closed:

— Friday from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday;

— Saturday from one hour after the Hawks game until noon Sunday;

— Sunday from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Monday.

The closures are necessary to accommodate CTA crews as they put equipment in place for use on the Red Line reconstruction project, IDOT officials said.

The amount of roadway closed at one time varies from day to day and from inbound versus outbound lanes. For example, Friday outbound, starting at 9 p.m., one lane will close from 31st to 37th, from 45th to 69th, and from 77th to 96th streets. At midnight, two lanes will close along those outbound stretches. By 7 am Saturday, only one lane will be closed. By 10 a.m. all lanes will be opened.

    Volunteers are working to help save one of the only stadiums still in existence where black professional baseball teams once played. Hinchliffe Stadium in Paterson was once home to the New York Black Yankees, the New York Cubans and other Negro League teams. Eleven members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame played there, including Larry Doby.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
