July 31, 2008 9:20:39 AM PDT
The drive on the Edens Expressway is a lot smoother. Thursday morning, all four lanes of traffic were re-opened in both directions between Old Orchard and Lake Cook Road. Work continues south of Old Orchard Road to the junction with the Kennedy Expressway.

All three lanes of traffic in both directions south of Old Orchard are on target to be open by the end of August.

Nighttime closings in the southern stretch of the expressway will continue through September.

The Edens repair work began in April.
