A major road construction project near O'Hare Airport is wrapping up three weeks ahead of schedule.

It's the flyover ramp that takes drivers from the southbound Tri-State Tollway to the eastbound Jane Addams Tollway.

The ramp is scheduled to reopen early Saturday. It has been closed since July.

Tollway officials say about 32,000 vehicles use the ramp each day.

Next year, the ramp from northbound Interstate 294 to westbound Interstate 90 will be rebuilt.
