Two busy ramps and two new lanes on the Kennedy Expressway will open on Friday.According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, commuters can look forward to these changes by the end of the week:
  • the inbound ramp at Madison on the Kennedy Expressway
  • the outbound Adams and Jackson ramps
  • and the new left lanes in each direction between Jackson and Lake.

    The changes were part of a project to provide longer and safer merge areas along the expressway.

    Work continues on the inbound ramps at Monroe, Adams and Jackson through spring of 2010.
