59 is backed up[ every which way.. butterfield backed up, winfield road, north aurora, side streets, eola. its a huge cluster fuck

Some downed powerlines on 59 and deihl.

I was going south on farnsworth at 5:30 and it was a friggin parking lot. Decided to take the highway at farnsworth to Eola (counting on my back road knowledge to get down Eola) turns out, Eola was dead and wide open. Couldn't believe it. I've never seen it so dead. I think the majority thought Eola was going to be backed up so they fled to Farnsworth. Suckers. I got home fast as hell

The 59 project is suppose to be 2 years. I take it every morning early and take a different route home. Feel sorry for some of the businesses.

I used to drive 59 from Streamwood to Aurora for work, and I never had any problems other than the occasional accident. And that fucked up intersection of 59 & Butterfield, where they've been doing construction for the last 5 fucking years


So glad I don't have to make that drive anymore

Think it's bad now? I saw a press release that said 59 was going to be completely closed just south of north aurora rd by the metra underpass, for construction. Enjoy!
