Construction to snarl Wacker and Lake Friday

Drivers in the loop are now being warned to avoid Wacker Drive and Lake Street on Friday.

A construction project that was scheduled for Thursday has been delayed a day.

Starting at about 8 a.m. Friday, a day-long procession of more than one hundred truck loads of concrete will be delivered to build a new intersection at Wacker and Randolph.

The pour is expected to last eight hours, so the area will be congested.
