Ramp from Ida B. Wells Drive to outbound Kennedy Expressway closes Saturday

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The ramp from the outbound Ida B. Wells Drive to the outbound Kennedy Expressway will close early Saturday morning.

The closure is part of the Jane Byrne Interchange project and is needed to demolish and rebuild the ramp so it can reopen by the end of 2020, IDOT says.
